Stuart Watkiss says that Town's fans deserve to see their team playing Second Division football next season after a few 'meaningless' campaigns.
Going into a vital game with Cheltenham tonight, he says the club owe the fans promotion, but says it is just good to be fighting for promotion instead of mid-table obscurity.
He told TEAMtalk: "Mansfield have had too many seasons in recent years where, come the end of the season, the games have been meaningless so it is lovely to be involved in the play-off chase, they are times to be enjoyed.
"Billy Dearden leaving for Notts County was a bit of a surprise for all concerned, but I came on board at the start of January and thoroughly enjoyed it.
"We have been in third place for a long time, and when we had the poor run, Cheltenham overtook us, but there is still a lot to play for, there are so many scenarios, twists and turns to go but all we have to do is concentrate on the games and reassess the situation from there."
