Garry Birtles: Mansfield Town will want to resume a charge that could lead to promotion
MANSFIELD Town will have been gutted that their game at Wrexham was cancelled this week.
If you thought Nottingham Forest were on a roll, they have nothing on the Stags, who have now notched up NINE consecutive wins.
If they had made it ten in north Wales on Tuesday night, they would have dealt a big blow in the title race in the Conference Premier; they would have edged closer to a return to the Football League.
I don't know what Paul Cox has put in their tea at the One Call Stadium, but they are finding their momentum at just the right time.

If the Stags boss can maintain his now usual habit of finishing the campaign strongly, the club will make the step up at a canter.
Nobody in the division wants to make the top spot their own. Newport, Grimsby – my old club – and Wrexham have all been up there.
And Kidderminster overtook Mansfield in midweek, when the Wrexham fixture was called off.
But Stags have one or two games in hand on all their rivals.
It would be great to see them continue their run and, by doing so, rampage all the way to the title.
Another few weeks have gone by, so it must be time for another change of manager at Blackburn Rovers.
You start to wonder if the club's owners are actually trying to make the club a laughing stock.
Because they are doing a superb job of it.
Michael Appleton had been in the role for 67 days. Henning Berg was only around for a similar amount of time.
And that was after they had forced Steve Kean out the door, early in the season.
You never want to see a club do badly, because no fan deserves that.
But, if Blackburn do drop down into League One this season, it will be no more than they deserve.
A proud, historic club is being brought to its knees by owners who are making one bad decision after another.
