Manager Adam Murray has admitted that Mansfield have taken strides forward since the last time we faced Bury, and he’s looking forward to seeing just how far we have come when we face them again this coming Saturday.

Back at the end of the December we faced David Flitcroft’s boys and came out on the wrong end of a two nil defeat at Gigg Lane, but speaking to the Official Site he explained that whilst we still had a way to go, he was very confident we were going in the right direction and he felt it would be a good test to see how we matched up to them again.

“I think we`ve come a very long way since the Bury game. In the three games that I think we have been very poor, Bury being one of them, you have to give certain credit to your opposition. I said before the Bury game there, that they`re an outstanding outfit. For the resources and the infrastructure which they have, they probably believe they`re a little bit below where they should be.’

Murray goes on to say that in his opinion they should definitely be in the automatic spots in League Two and he wouldn’t be surprised to see them there come the end of the season.

Of course we go into the game this time out having picked up seven points out of a maximum nine so he knows that the group are in a bit of form and are confident, and he’s hoping that comes across in how we play the game and that we get a result that we want.

‘We are on our journey and we`re progressing every week. It`ll be another tough test with for us, one which we`ll go into with a lot of confidence. We have a certain way of playing at home, and that won`t change. We`ve had some good results and some very high performances but we`re only just scratching the surface of where I believe I can take this team and football club. The boys are high in confidence. They`re playing superbly at the minute and can`t wait to get their teeth into another challenge.’

As for team news Murray might be without Junior Brown as he picked up a hamstring problem in the game against Cheltenham Town so it might be a chance for on loan Jeff Monakana.
