Stags Fired Up

Caretaker manager Peter Shirtliff believes being bottom of the league fired his young squad into action as they thrashed Shrewsbury 4-0 at Field Mill.

"All week in training there has been a spark about them and I think it was anger that they were bottom of the league."

"I told them to take that out on the pitch with them and I think it showed.

"I was pleased with the overall performance and we could have scored more than we did with the number of chances we created."
