‘BACK us every step of the way’ - that is the message from Stags boss Paul Cox to the Field Mill fans.
Cox issued the plea as Mansfeld prepare to get their Blue Square Premier title push underway at home to Newport County on Saturday.
Said Cox: “The fans were magnificent last season and played a massive part in helping us to third in the table.
“When you go to a place like Tamworth and have 1,000 fans and more away fans than home fans it gives you a massive boost.
“We need the fans to do the same again this season and to get behind us, they can make a massive difference.”
But Cox is also urging the fans to also keep their feet on the ground.
“We have raised the bar here now,”he said. “Expectations levels have increased and that is something we can cope with as a team.
“We also need the fans to keep their expectation levels realistic and back us through thick and thin.
“The season is going to be an emotional rollercoaster for everyone involved and the fans have a massive part to play.”
