Keep believing, says Stags boss

Posted onPosted on 24th Jan

Mansfield Town manager Adam Murray said Saturday’s 0-0 draw with League Two leaders Wycombe Wanderers was a “real platform” to build on in their relegation fight.

The Stags, dominant at home for the second successive week without finding the killer touch in front of goal, strick the post twice as they outplayed the leaders.

Murray said: “We have gone toe to toe with top of the league and had them on the back foot for large parts of it.

“This is a real platform on which we can build.

“I am over the moon with our performance and over the moon with individual performances.

“I saw a massive change in our game management, our organisation and the way we went about things.

“It was a big thing to get a clean sheet. I have drummed on about it all week it’s probably done their heads in.

This was a massive point for us. And people might say we should have won it. Their keeper has made two or three world class saves.

“Performance levels have gone through the roof here in the last two months and I know the results will come. This whole process excites me.

“The biggest thing is belief. I can’t ask any more from the boys right now.

“I know people are anxious with results and the position we are in, but I am confident and everyone needs to keep believing.”
