The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

MANS­FIELD’s long­est-serv­ing player Ritchie Sut­ton has urged fans to stick with them.

The Stags had 48 at­tempts on goal in their first three games of 2015 with only three find­ing the net.

How­ever 28-year-old Sut­ton, who joined the club in 2011, be­lieves things can – and will – get bet­ter sooner rather than later.

“I know when you look at the league ta­ble it’s a rel­e­ga­tion battle, but we’ve played the teams ‘up there’ such as Bur­ton and Wy­combe, and we de­served to get some­thing,” the de­fender said.

“I think we’ll go into ev­ery game now, re­gard­less of who we’re play­ing, look­ing for the three points. We’ve been so tense.Ten games ago we were go­ing 1-0 up and weren’t able to see things out.

“I think if we go one or two goals up now, with the ex­pe­ri­ence that we’ve got at the back, we should be able to see things out. We’ve had enough learn­ing points this sea­son, now we’ve got to start do­ing the busi­ness.”
