He has confirmed 28 players have made themselves available for the trip to Stonehaven to face Mackie FP on Saturday.

The Stags are 10 points adrift at the bottom of the table with six games left of the season remaining.

But crucially they have three games in hand on seventh place Moray with only one team being relegated.

Mann says Ross Sutherland are up for the challenge of staying up and avoiding dropping down to Caledonia North Three next season.

“We have 28 names available for the game against Mackie,” he confirmed.

“It is outstanding as we usually struggle with away matches.

“It is giving me a great problem to have.

“Our president John Scott gave the squad a speech.

“He said the only thing that is more exciting than a cup run is a relegation battle.

“A lot of the boys have bought into that, the numbers in training have been great.

“Even with having no games for a few weeks, boys have put everything into training.”
