There was plenty of big news out of Mansfield Town Football Club at this morning’s press conference ahead of the new season on Saturday.

Manager David Flitcroft revealed that he expected clubs chasing strikers Danny Rose and Lee Angol to reach the asking price for both and to lose them, leaving him chasing a new striker as cover.

He also said he expected a loan centre half in by Thursday and was hoping skipper Krystian Pearce would be mentally focused again and playing by the weekend after the upset over the recent racism row.

In this Facebook Live broadcast from the ground, Chad sports editor John Lomas summarises the main points.
