Paul Cox not worried by Mansfield Town contract delay

Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox says he is not concerned that he is yet to sign a new deal with the club.

The 40-year-old, who guided the Stags to the Blue Square Bet Premier play-offs in his first season in charge, is out of contract next month.

And although he agreed a two-year deal last month, nothing has been finalised.

"I haven't signed it yet but I trust the chairman and the chairman trusts me. We have a good relationship," Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham.

The former Eastwood Town manager, who took over as Stags boss last summer, had previously been linked with the vacant manager's job at Burton Albion.

"I want to make sure this football club is going forward. There are a lot of things we need to improve on," he added.

"I have shaken hands with the chairman and we will sit down when we have a spare hour or two and see what we need to be successful next season."

Mansfield face another Blue Square Bet Premier campaign next season after their hopes of returning to the Football League defeat ended with a 2-1 aggregate defeat by York in the play-off semi-finals.
