The impressive Sam Clucas and Saturday's match winner Ollie Palmer, have both won early plaudits amongst the Stags' faithful.
"He's a good player, that's why we signed him," said Cox, when asked about Palmer. "He is young, and still has a great desire to improve and learn. It's my job to make sure we're not putting too much pressure on these young players; to make sure they're protected and their education is coming on at the right speed."
"We have people [in the squad] who haven't been playing, like Louis Briscoe and Lindon Meikle, who has been playing excellent of late and was probably unlucky not to be included in the 11 on the Saturday.
"It will come with these younger players, especially those who have made the step up from the Conference to the Football League. One thing I can say about the boys that have come up with me [from the Conference] is that sometimes it has taken a little time for them to learn, but they have come good.
"As the season unfolds, there will be a number of players who will come into their own," he added.
