Speaking in Monday's Nottingham Evening Post, the midfielder said "It seems that every time we come away from home we are not doing ourselves justice and I think at times that is because we are being bullied," he said.

"When it gets physical we are not competing enough.

"The teams we play are not necessarily bigger than us. I just think it is a mental thing. We need to stand firm and get through the difficult part of matches without conceding.

"The most disappointing thing is when you are beaten by a side that is not a better footballing team, but they have just worked harder.

"We need to keep a high level of performance for the whole 90 minutes and not just in flashes."

The Stags have won just one game away from home all season, and that at bottom of the table Macclesfield. 6 defeats on the road would suggest that there is something seriously wrong with the Stags on their travels.
