The victory at Dagenham was the Stags’ first win during the month of October for three years, since October 2012 in the promotion season, and they followed that up with a home win against Newport last weekend.

But boss Adam Murray said: “I have no interest in previous Octobers – it’s about us and it’s about now. We are not looking back, we are looking forward.

“We want to put points on the board and continue what we’re doing. Whatever has gone on over the last few years, it doesn’t matter to this group.

“This group has its own identity and its own belief, its own targets and a desire to hit those targets, and that won’t change.

“October, November, August – I have no interest.”
