Mansfield Town are looking to break a club-record eight successive league wins after being unbeaten in their last seven.

The Stags – who currently sit in seventh place in League Two – are on course to make the promotion places, as they are currently level on points with sixth place Swindon Town.

Mansfield Town manager Nigel Clough stated that a new club-record would be an “incentive” going into their Leyton Orient home game on Saturday.

He said: “That’s [setting a new club record] a great incentive for us.

“On top of what’s already there [the record], just getting the three points and trying to improve our league position [will be important].”

The emphatic run emphasises the remarkable form the Stags are currently on.

“It’s nice when you know you’re having a good run” said the manager.

“All the years that the football club has been in the Football League and you’re equalling a record.

“It shows we’re doing something right at the moment.”

Clough is hopeful that the Stags support will be large, as they go into a potentially record-breaking afternoon.

“If they [the supporters] can [get to the Leyton Orient game] that would be wonderful.

“I think supporters are enjoying the way that we’re playing at the moment, certainly the victories. Enjoy it whilst it lasts.

“However, many numbers in there [inside One Call Stadium] sounds a lot more when we do play. The atmosphere is brilliant.

“We’ve got to keep providing the performances on the pitch and the crowds will come and the atmosphere will be there.”

However, it was a difficult start in League Two this season, as from August 21 to October 23 the Stags picked up just four points from 11 league games as well as exited the EFL Cup in the first round to Preston.

From then on, Town were able to make a significant U-turn in their league campaign, going on to win their next five consecutive games, including a 1-0 victory away to Sunderland in the first round of the FA Cup.

After losing their next game to Sutton United, they have gone on an impressive seven league game unbeaten run and will hope to make it eight this Saturday.

The feat makes them currently one of the strongest teams in League Two.
