VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I thought it was a thoroughly professional performance from the boys - they look as though they've looked after themselves over Christmas.

"Their work-ethic, mindset and, more importantly, the shape of our side looked excellent.

"On another day, we could have scored a few more goals, especially in the second half, where I thought we were excellent."
