Cox set for milestone

17 September 2013

Manager Paul Cox says he will feel a sense of pride on Saturday, when he takes charge of his 100th league game for the club.

The landmark, however, will not detract from the main aim which is three points against Northampton Town, Cox said.

The opening 99 league games, 92 in the Conference and seven in the Football League, have seen Cox win 58, draw 22 and lose the other 19 matches. He has therefore won 59% of league matches, amassing an average of 1.9 points per game.

"It's nice that I have got to a milestone and I'm proud to do that, but I'll be more focussed on trying to win the football match [on Saturday]," said Cox.

For the full interview, visit Stags Player later today.

Reflecting on his time with us after landing the manager's job in May 2011, he said: "It's been a rollercoaster.  I'm learning all the time. We've had some good times and bad times, but I'm in the game for the thrill of the chase.  I have enjoyed every minute of it. Long may it continue."

He added: "There's a million and one things which I can get better at and you always look to improve. Hopefully during my time here I have improved in some areas, but I still look to improve in others."

In other news, the manager has said that the club are not appealing Martin Riley's red card from Saturday's match at York. The defender will now be out for three matches.
