MURRAY HOPES SCORING RUN CONTINUES
Adam Murray is hoping he can keep his recent goalscoring streak going when Carlisle United visit Field Mill for Saturday's must-win game.
Murray's seven goals in 12 games have been a crucial factor in Mansfield's push for promotion and the on-loan Derby County star is keen to maintain that run against The Cumbrians at the weekend.
Victory for Stags, coupled with a win for champions Plymouth Argyle at home to Cheltenham Town, would propel Mansfield into Division Two and 20-year-old Murray said: "We are all looking forward to it.
"It is a very big game and there should be a lot of people there. We are relying on Plymouth to do us a favour but we have to make sure we win as well.
"It has been brilliant since I came here on loan. It's like one big family and it would be lovely to pop up with another goal on Saturday.
"Once you get on a scoring streak it seems everything you hit just flies in. I have never scored this many goals before altogether in my career, let alone in one season.
"I think it's all down to the way this team plays. We attack sides and I can get forward much more than I could with Derby."
He added: "But we do also have to defend much better on Saturday as our defending through the team, back to front, has been shocking recently."
