Mansfield Town manager Steve Evans praised his players following the 5-0 demolition job over Newport County on Tuesday night.

He told the official Mansfield Town website ‘I think in spells in the first half, it was as good as we’ve had here.’

The Stags were 2-0 up inside the opening nine minutes of the game at the One Call, not letting off the pedal throughout a superb first half display.

Alfie Potter went on to become the hat trick hero as the promotion bid went up another notch.

‘I thought it was a lot of hard work. There was a lot of good work and there was a lot of on-the-front-foot performances,’ the Stags boss said.

‘It’s about the boys having determination, having the ability to live properly and if you live properly and you display it in training, we’ll put you in, as we’ve seen tonight.’ Evans concluded

It’s Exeter City away next up for the Stags.
