Mansfield Town will not be heading into the loan market for a new striker just yet after a run of three games without a goal.

The Stags have scored just twice in five outings, but boss Adam Murray said he was happy with how many chances his side are creating and confident his strikers would start getting on the end of more of them.

On the possibility of a loan striker, he said: “Not with 16 games gone. The last three games you talk about we had Portsmouth away, then if I am being totally honest we were the best team against Wycombe, and we’ve created three or four open cut chances on Saturday.

“You can look at these things in two ways, you can put a headline that we are struggling for goals or you can put a headline that we are creating loads of chances and playing really well. It depends what glass you are holding.”
