Speaking in Friday's Nottingham Evening Post, Baptiste said "We need to play at a high tempo throughout our games, not just in spells of it.

"Against Notts County we played well for the first 50-odd minutes, and we played well in the second half against Boston.

"I don't think there is anyone who can live with us when we play a fast game and we need to start doing that for the whole 90 minutes."

"I think when you are 1-0 down away from home you have to be happy if you come back and get a draw.

"But personally I thought it was two points lost. I didn't think much to Boston. They only had the one chance and scored from it.

"It was still good to get a point, though, and we have to build on the draw when Wrexham come here."

"It is a bit of a worry that we have had only one clean sheet because in the tight games we need to be more solid at the back.

"I do think we are getting better as a unit, though, and it is only a matter of time before we start shutting teams out."

The Stags need to start winning games, if they are to make a mark this campaign.
