The event, which starts at 7.45pm, follows the Stags Supporters Association AGM at 7pm, and is also open to non-SSA members, priced at £2 entry, which includes a raffle ticket.

“I enjoy these nights,” said Murray. “I think people know the way I am. I am open and honest with people and if they ask me a question, they will get the truth.

“But I’d like to think they are quite happy at the minute so it’s probably quite a good time to go in.

“It’s a big thing we’ve made a point of this season that the cliches of ‘we want people to be the 12th man and we are in this together’, a lot of it can be said with no meaning behind it.

“With us this season we have brought the community and fans into our group and I am hoping they feel that. We are up with the big boys at the minute and challenging teams in that top six or seven that have vast resources to us.

“So it’s important we do come together as a group and we are strong as one.”

He added: “Games like Dagenham and Yeovils when you are up against it and have to dig deep, it wasn’t just the lads on the pitch or in the squad, it was everyone and we appreciate that and will always show our appreciation.

“It will be good to catch up with a few and have a face to face view on expectations. We all want to succeed, but the thing we have to keep is the optimism versus the realism.”

Entry to the SSA AGM is by SSA Season 15/16 membership card.
