Mansfield Town relishing hostile environment at Luton
MANSFIELD Town boss Paul Cox says the club will embrace the hostile atmosphere when they head to Kenilworth Road to face Luton today.
The two are both battling for promotion, with the Stags sixth, just three points off third spot and knowing victory could take them into the play-off places today.
The Hatters are eight points behind Mansfield in eighth but with a game in hand on Paul Cox's men and even more on other promotion rivals.
With a big crowd expected in Luton, it should make for a tasty occasion with the Stags in solid form, having won six of their last seven games.

And Cox said: "It has all the makings of being a very good game because both teams have aspirations of breaking into those play-off places and it is looking like a tasty fixture.
"It is always hostile and that is what you expect down there, with a big crowd. But those are the kind of games, the kind of atmospheres you want to play in.
"As a manager, I relish those and then we have Lincoln on Tuesday, which will be a big crowd again so it is a big week. But, we have quite a lot of big weeks coming up."
Luton manager Paul Buckle stepped down in the week, citing personal reasons for his departure from the club.
Their form has also slipped but Cox is under no illusions of the task ahead.
"Paul Buckle going has come as a surprise," admitted the Stags boss. "But it does not matter to us. We have to be thoroughly professional and go down there and do a job.
"We are not being sidetracked with what's happening there. We just have to focus on getting a positive result."
