Although Mansfield Town now have their full complement of forwards, manager David Flitcroft will still be delving into the transfer market for defenders.

And being in Portugal for the week-long training camp will not halt his progress.

He said: “There are still things going on behind the scenes. We are still short defensively we have made no secret of that. It’s something we are looking into.

“But we will still keep looking. You just never know. You never know about enquiries on some of our players.

“I think there will be a lot of movement – not particularly at this football club. There will be a domino effect.”

He added: “The front end now has everything I wanted. Now we have the numbers and ability up there to put teams to the sword.

“I now need to work with them and get the combinations and partnerships right. I need to get the balance right.”
