Stags boss Paul Cox says players must deal with expectation ahead of Nuneaton trip
MANSFIELD Town boss Paul Cox says there will always be expectation – and his players have to deal with it.
The Stags have stuttered this season in the league, with fans becoming frustrated at the One Call Stadium when things are not going their way.
And on Saturday in the FA Cup against Slough Town, of the Evo-Stik Southern Division One Central, Mansfield were subjected to another painful afternoon as they were held to a 0-0 draw on a day when their fans expected to see their team cruise through to the second round.
But while Cox was not too down afterwards, he said expectation is something they have to deal with as they travel to rock-bottom Nuneaton in the Blue Square Bet Premier tonight, knowing they have won just one of their seven league games on their travels.

He said: "Players have got to deal with expectation, it is as simple as that. I cannot mess around anymore and we are going to play at home and they have to be brave. We know what is going to happen if we don't win a football match so players have to live with that.
"It is the same away. The expectation at this football club has rubbed off on everyone and as soon as it gets its feet back on the ground and we realise the league we are in, who we are, we might start winning games consistently."
