Mansfield Town look to bolster squad this week
MANSFIELD Town boss Paul Cox has a trio of top players on his radar as he looks to step up his hunt for new blood in the week.
His chase for Fleetwood defender Steve McNulty goes on while he is also after a League One and League Two player.
But the Stags manager is also keen not to disrupt his squad too much, after securing back-to-back away victories against Stockport and then Southport on Saturday.
Those matches have seen the likes of Lee Stevenson and Colin Daniel take their chance.

And Cox said: "We have irons in the fire, we are looking to add strength to the squad with some very good players. Steve McNulty is the one people keep talking about but there are other top, top players we are looking at bringing in.
"But there is a good feeling among the group, we are getting back to like last season and I also don't want to disrupt that for the sake of it. The players coming in need to have the right mind-set."
Despite the 2-1 win at Southport, the Stags started slowly and had to come from behind to seal victory.
"We started slowly against Kidderminster, we started slowly at Stockport and the same at Southport so it is something we have to look at," he said.
"But the good thing is this group is getting stronger and looking a very hard side to break down.
"It was an excellent result and thoroughly deserved. The lads are starting to understand what is required. We defended as a team and I never thought Southport were ever going to break us down after the first 15 minutes."
