VIEW FROM THE BENCH

: "I went to watch them last Saturday against AFC Wimbledon and was impressed. They work very hard for each other and have individuals who can hurt us. We will need to maintain the same performance levels we have shown in recent games but after a fortnight's break I sense the boys can't wait for this game."Mark Yates

: "We can feel something bubbling here and when we do click into place in our forward and defensive areas someone is going to be on the end of a heavy defeat. We feel like we can grab this league."Adam Murray (Mansfield manager)

Not at all in the League, although the club did meet in our Conference days.
