David Artell has described Mansfield Town as a dangerous opponent this weekend. The Stags, who lost out in the play-off semi-final last season are currently 18th in the table but Artell is wary of their threat going forward, especially with our former forward Nicky Maynard at the club.
Artell told the club’s official website: “Mansfield are a dangerous opponent. They finished fourth last season and lost in the play-off semi-final. They haven’t changed their squad all that much except bringing in one of the leading scorers in the league last year in Nicky (Maynard). They have good players and they would be the first to admit that they should be doing better.
“They can be a real dangerous team with the players they have but they are not doing as well as expected.
“The board made a change right after the play-offs and John (Dempster) is still finding his feet. They do not become a good team over night and on the flipside they do not become a bad team overnight either.
“We have to be wary of them and we cannot show any sentiment. We have to go out there and do the business.”
