GARY ROWETT

People asked me after the game what was going through my mind," he said

"The answer was simple – what team was I going to put out against Mansfield.

"They're a lot like Newport, only they play a three at the back.

"They've got size in the team, but we've watched them and technically they've got some very good players.

"The striker, Alex Fisher, has come back from playing abroad and is a good player.

"We certainly won't undervalue what they can do.

"We've got to be up for the fight."

PAUL COX

"They are a good side and have got a good squad of players," said Cox.

"They've kept the nucleus from last year, added some quality to it and thoroughly deserve to beat the Wigans and QPRs of this world.

"They've had a half-decent start to the season.

"Make no bones about it, they are going to be up there this season as one of the teams to watch.

"But I've always said, it's not about Burton Albion coming here, Manchester United coming here or whoever coming here, what I like to concentrate on is my own team and my own players.

"We're working extremely hard to improve."
