Stags' chief executive officer Carolyn Radford wants a bumper crowd for tomorrow's Sky Bet League Two clash with Lincoln City as new manager David Flitcroft begins his tenure at One Call Stadium.
The former Barnsley manager was unveiled as the new Stags' boss last Thursday after Mrs Radford and chairman John Radford met Flitcroft on Wednesday to discuss the 44-year-old joining the Stags from Swindon Town.
The clash with the Imps is an all-ticket affair and supporters wishing to purchase tickets in person or via telephone must do so before 5.00pm today (Monday). However, tickets will be available to purchase online until midnight from www.stagstickets.co.uk.
The Stags are currently two points off the top three with 12 games left to play and the Stags' CEO wants Flitcroft's reign to begin with a vocal backing against the Imps.
"We're thrilled to have David with us," Mrs Radford said.
"He has walked into the building and brought such energy and positivity – he just knows what he wants and we know what he wants, and that's promotion.
"Our supporters are the best in the land and we hope that they will come out in great numbers tomorrow to welcome David to the club as we continue our push for promotion.
"We all know the positive impact that a vociferous and encouraging home support can have on the players.
"Our supporters are the best in the land and we hope that they will come out in great numbers tomorrow to welcome David to the club as we continue our push for promotion."
"Our supporters have made the difference between drawing and winning at One Call Stadium at points this season.
"We have the best fans ever and we just really need the support of everyone who has the Stags at heart – it's vital now."
Mr and Mrs Radford were attracted by Flitcroft's track record during his managerial career having previously won promotion from Sky Bet League Two with Bury in 2015 after just a-year-and-a-half at the Shakers.
And with the club poised for a serious tilt at automatic promotion, Mrs Radford believes the appointment of Flitcroft reaffirms the Stags' 'project promotion'.
"We had thousands of applications. There were some real quality applicants as well and some tremendous CVs coming through, but I think for us we wanted someone who knew that we were at such a critical point at the moment and that we are still 'project promotion'.
"We want to get into League One and there was only one man that could do it for us.
"We've literally worked solidly together and we've not stopped.
"We've got a vibrant, young enthusiastic manager who I know is going to take us to the next level of where we need to be so John and I are absolutely thrilled and can't wait to just crack on now."
