But Clough also believes the Stags faithful will also have a part to play.

"Stay behind us next season as much as you can," he said.

"There are enough signs to say ‘this is how we want to play’ and ‘this is how we want to go about it.’

“We want to try to have an enjoyable and successful season.”

Reflecting on the 2020-21 campaign, which saw Clough replace Graham, Coughlan in the dug-out as the club finished 16th, he added: “It’s been a strange season in many ways.

"We only had the five months or so, but it’s been strange for lots of reasons.

“We’ve had empty stands, and have had to get used to it. I can’t wait for the supporters to be back in.

“I’m very pleased to finish where we have. It should be more (points) and should be better (final position), but hopefully that will be next season."
