The Stags, who had the best defensive record in League Two following Tuesday's win over Swansea, lost the accolade over the weekend. Following the 2-1 defeat to Cheltenham, the Stags have now conceded 30 goals in 32 games, while Scunthorpe who were involved in a goalless draw, have conceded 29 goals in 31 games.

The Stags have now played 15 league games under Carlton Palmer, compared to 17 under Keith Curle earlier this season. The records are as follows:
Curle: Pld 17; Pts 23; Goals F 23; A 19.
Palmer: Pld 15; Pts 20; Goals F 11; A 11.

The Stags' next opponents on the road, Bury, have conceded the equal fewest number goals at home in League Two: just 11 in 16 games (the same as Southend). Despite this record, Bury have only won 5 of their home games, drawing 7 and losing 4.

Meanwhile the next visitors to Field Mill, Wycombe, have the best away record in League Two, collecting 25 points from their 16 away games, with 7 wins and 4 draws.
