Of all the new signings he has made, Mansfield Town manager Adam Murray believes keeping Crewe loanee striker Vadaine Oliver until the end of the season may be the best bit of business he has done.

“From day one I wanted to keep him and he is a massive signing for us,” said Murray.

“He has had his plaudits – but not enough. He is someone who goes about things for the team that a lot of people don’t see.

“He can occupy a back four on his own. His attitude is spot on and give him the service he will score goals.

“Vadaine will do the horrible stuff and create chances for other people. He will knock the others about and someone else can take the credit.”
