Saturday can be springboard for Stags - Angol

7 September 2017

Frontman Lee Angol is hoping for Saturday's Sky Bet League Two match against Grimsby Town (1.00pm kick-off) to act as a springboard to kickstart the Stags' season.

Angol has started each of the Stags' five League games following his summer move from Peterborough United, scoring two goals along the way.

And the former Boreham Wood striker is hoping that Saturday's game marks the start of a successful period for the Stags.

"It'll be a great game and hopefully a great atmosphere. Hopefully we can use that game as a springboard to start getting our performances in, getting the wins in and getting win after win after win," Angol said.

"Winning becomes a habit and obviously once you start building wins, we'll become an unstoppable force.

"We've just got to keep working hard and obviously chances will come in games and we've just got to take them.

"We've got to stay focussed. We've got to take it game-by-game and get three points."

"Winning becomes a habit and obviously once you start building wins, we'll become an unstoppable force."

Lee Angol, striker

The 23-year-old bagged his first competitive goal for the Stags in the 2-1 defeat to Accrington Stanley last month, before scoring a week later in the draw against Luton Town.

Now Angol wants to score at a frequent rate throughout the season to maximise the Stags' chances of success.

"Of course I want more [goals] but it's one of them ones where you've just got to keep going. If I had no goals by this point or ten goals by this point, it still doesn't mean anything.

"If I'm on ten goals, it doesn't mean I'll get 1,000 goals. It doesn't matter right now, it's a long season."

Stags now have a quintet of strikers following the loan acquisition of Kane Hemmings from Oxford United last month and Angol believes that the duo, in addition to Danny Rose, Jimmy Spencer and Omari Sterling-James, offer something different for boss Steve Evans to call upon.

"He (Hemmings) offers something different to the other strikers we've got in the team.

"Now we've got a bunch of strikers who can all offer different things and now we've got to start getting the partnerships going and attacking the league.

"It's about taking our chances and tightening up as a team, not letting teams through as easily, then we'll start getting results.

"We're a new team but we can't use that excuse every week. There's got to come a time when we'll all click. I feel like once we do click, or do finally gel, then our performances will just go [up]."
