Boss calls on townsfolk to take advantage of special ticket offer for Saturday’s game.
Manager Adam Murray is encouraging the people of Mansfield to turn out in great numbers and take advantage of the club’s special cut-price ticket offer for Saturdays game with Exeter City (3.00pm).
Supporters can watch Saturday’s match against the Grecians – the first fixture at One Call Stadium since the turn of the year – for just £7, providing they purchase tickets before 5.00pm tomorrow (Friday).
Up to six players could make their home debuts and our manager wants as much support as possible.
“At the minute everything we’re trying to do at the club is positive,” said Murray.
“I think people have seen an upturn in performance and a change in the way we’ve gone about things, so now we need to put points on the board. Like at any football club, that will bring people through the doors.
“With the ticket offer on Saturday, it’s a chance for people to come and see the new lads, have a look at us, and then it’s up to us to do the rest.”
Our team put in a brave second half display against promotion-chasing Burton Albion last Saturday, and were unlucky to come away with nothing to show for their efforts as they succumbed to a 2-1 defeat.
Although he concedes that our players will still need to gel together, Murray is optimistic about the future.
“Like I’ve said over the past couple of weeks, it’s something I was really aware of,” said the 33-year-old.
“We made the signings and I wanted them done early because I knew we’d have to go through a period of time where we have to get them gelling and on the same page, and understanding how we want to play.”
He added: “It’s been a really productive week. The lads have worked hard; physically, mentally and tactically, they’ve been tested.”
