Shirtliff in fans tribute

Mansfield manager Peter Shirtliff has thanked fans who have sent messages of condolence following the death of the club's goalkeeper coach.

Peter Wilson died after suffering a heart attack during the warm-up at Shrewsbury earlier in the month.

Ahead of Wednesday's funeral in Tamworth, Shirtliff said: "I'd like to say a thank you to the fans. It's been great to receive all their messages - they've shown a lot of sympathy.

"But knowing Peter as I did, he wouldn't want us moping around."
