mansfieldtown.net, Thursday 28 March 2019

Stags’ boss David Flitcroft says there has been a ‘fire’ within his players this week, as Mansfield prepare to take on promotion rivals Exeter on Saturday.

The amber and blue make what will be their longest away trip of the season to face the Grecians at the weekend, as we enter the final seven fixtures of the campaign.

The manager says that the Stags are ‘fighting together’ to ‘exorcise the ghost’ of last week’s disappointing defeat to Crewe.

“They [players] know exactly what is expected,” he said. “They know what is required. The spirit has been reignited this week.

“The fire is there. They know they’re in for one hell of a game. Exeter are a good team and have some top players.

Sweeney says that following the disappointing loss to Crewe, Saturday’s trip to Exeter provides a perfect opportunity to bounce back against a promotion rival.

“It [the mood] is really positive,” he said. “I think that’s the main thing, to go into these games [positively] no matter what form you’re in.

Exeter City boss Matt Taylor knows their home clash with promotion rivals Mansfield Town on Saturday can have a big bearing on the fate of the two clubs. Stags are without a win in four games and have dropped out the top three while Exeter have just won two on the bounce and sit seventh, five points behind Stags with a game in hand.

“I think we have said this before, but it will chop and change for the next eight games,” said Taylor. “We are playing another team in and around us, they are ahead of us for a reason and we have to give them full respect because they are a seriously good team.
