Defender Lee Beevers has called on his Mansfield Town team-mates to put their FA Cup exit behind them and start to climb up League Two.
Stags were dumped out of the FA Cup by Cambridge United on Tuesday as their miserable run of form continues.
But Beevers believes Stags can build on recent improved performances and pull away from the bottom end of the table.
Adam Murray aims to bring in new players
“It is frustrating that we did not put our chances away, it just seemed to be one of those days.
“We have to put Cambridge behind us now. It is important that we go on an unbeaten run and get a few wins to move up the table.
“We did not start this season too well, but hopefully we can pick up and move away from danger.
“We have performed well in the second half of the season before and hopefully we can repeat that this year.
“Our defending is not bad, we have just got to take our chances and hopefully the floodgates will open.
“There is good competition for places at the back and that helps get the best out of us. We have also got players coming back so we are in a better position than two-three months ago.”
Mansfield Town rewind: AFC Wimbledon 0 Mansfield Town 0
Liam Hearn unlikely to play again this season
Mansfield will be hoping to kick-start their season when they travel to London to face AFC Wimbledon on Saturday.
The match finished 0-0 last season following a magnificent goalkeeping display by Ross Worner.
Stags have won just one of their last 10 games and have not won away since they beat Exeter 2-1 on 6th September.
