Stags' boss Steve Evans has urged his players to maintain their focus after a superb display in tonight's magnificent 4-0 victory away to Port Vale.
A brace from skipper Zander Diamond and strikes from frontmen Danny Rose and Kane Hemmings ensured Stags took a deserved three points from in-form Port Vale.
The victory extended Stags' unbeaten run in all competitions to nine matches as they chalked up their third Sky Bet League Two clean sheet in a row.
And as he reflected on an impressive all-round display from his side, the manager highlighted the need for his players to remain focussed ahead of Saturday's local derby against Chesterfield.
"I've been over the course many times and we just get back on the training ground, we stay really focussed and if anyone loses their focus before Saturday, they're out [of the side]," the Stags' chief said.
"We've got no favourites in the camp; we pick them all equally, as we did tonight and as we do every other week.
"The dressing room is a fantastic place to be. People talk about team spirits from the top level to the bottom level and they come based on results really.
"If you're doing well and you're in a spell of form where the results are positive, the dressing room takes care of itself. We just need to make sure that we go back on the training ground and our focus every week should be about working hard."
"I've been over the course many times and we just get back on the training ground, we stay really focussed and if anyone loses their focus before Saturday, they're out [of the side]."
A clinical attacking display combined with a solid defensive performance helped Stags to a victory which catapulted them into the Sky Bet League Two play-offs and the gaffer was pleased with his players' efforts on a difficult pitch in Staffordshire.
"I don't think there was a lot in the game [before the first goal]. They've had a bit territorially, but not any clear-cut chances, Conrad's (Logan) had a couple of basic things to deal with.
"This is a team that we were playing tonight that had lots and lots of confidence. Just look at their last eight results, they're going to have lots of confidence.
"I must admit, I thought my back five were very good, but they were very good on Saturday.
"I thought the back two, central defensively, Rhys and Zander headed a lot of balls out tonight. They've competed with Tom Pope and if you compete with Tom Pope, it gives you a chance to beat Port Vale.
"I don't think Popey had many clear headers and when he did, it then presented Conrad with practically easy saves.
"Once we got the second goal, I could see our players stepping up and really believing. It's no more than three points, it's no more than victory on the road and we go back to the training ground and prepare for Saturday.
"It doesn't matter whether it's Chesterfield, Chester City or Chester United, it doesn't matter to us. It's another game."
