VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox tells BBC Radio Nottingham:

Cox hails 'tough' away victory

"Out of all the games we've played, I ticked this as one of the toughest away games this season so to come away scoring three goals and getting three points, I'm extremely happy today.

"When they equalised I thought coming away from here with a point is probably a good result, but the lads don't know when to give up.

"This group of players are growing game by game, they are confident in their shape, their sharpness and more than anything they are confident about the teammate that is playing alongside them."
