Mullin Looking Forward To Wycombe Showdown

Forward Looks Ahead To Saturday's Game

20 October 2017

Paul Mullin has vowed that Town will look to give it their all against Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday.

The Reds welcome the in-form Chairboys to The Energy Check County Ground tomorrow (3pm) after enduring a mixed week in terms of results. 

And Mullin is expecting a tough test from Wycombe but he is confident that his side have what it takes to come out on top. 

"Mansfield away was a great performance and it was a great win," he told iFollow STFC exclusively.

"Before we went there they were unbeaten at home but you've seen how good we've been away from home and we just tried to be positive and carry on that form.

"That's what we did, we got the three points and we played really well. 

"We went into Tuesday's game looking to back that up and get the three points but sadly we were not able to do that. 

"I felt we played very well, we moved the ball well and obviously we didn't many chances but they didn't have the ball for the whole of the second-half. 

"We've been done on one set-piece and we've been very good at set-pieces this season. We've just got to try and make it right in the next game now. 

"I've played against Wycombe a few times now and they are a big, physical side who look to get the ball forward to Adebayo Akinfenwa, but they are very good in the wide areas also and they like to get crosses into the box and press you high up the pitch. 

"They will make you pay if you give it away in our half so we need to try and be good in possession but we've also got to have the clinical edge at the other end to get the goals.

"Every game is about us and if we can perform to our maximum then we feel we can win most games, if not all of them. 

"Saturday will be no different. We will go into it, we will give it our all, try our hardest and see if we can come out with the three points."

"They will make you pay if you give it away in our half so we need to try and be good in possession but we've also got to have the clinical edge at the other end to get the goals."

Mullin has also thrown his weight behind the club's 'Fans For Our Future' promotion, which will aim to try and encourage as many young fans into the ground as possible tomorrow. 

"When I was a young lad my dad and my brothers used to take me to Liverpool games, that's where I was from so I used to love going and I fell in love with Liverpool," he added.

"I used to go to every game until I started playing myself and I couldn't go anymore, but I would encourage any parents or families to get their children into their local clubs if they can afford to and bring them to games. 

"They can look up to the players and you will be involved more because the lower league clubs like to get the fans involved a lot more."
