JOHN LOMAS’ WEEKLY STAGS VIDEO BLOG: Sights lowered as play-off hopes fade

Chad sports editor John Lomas looks back over another disappointing result as Stags’ winless run stretched to seven games at Hartlepool on Saturday in his weekly Mansfield Town FC video blog.

He looks at how they shot themselves in the foot once more as they remain eight points off the play-offs with six to play.
