McEwan vows to turn things around

Billy McEwan
McEwan's team are three points above the relegation zone

Mansfield Town manager Billy McEwan has said he will prove his critics wrong after being jeered by some supporters during the Stags' 3-1 defeat by Oxford.

Mansfield are now three points above the Blue Square Premier relegation zone following Thursday's game.

McEwan told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I've got enough belief in my own ability.

"I'm not the only manager that's getting booed at the minute, [Arsene]Wenger's getting booed and it's not nice but it is part of the job."

McEwan added: "It's a matter of the players going out there, I can't go and put the ball in the net for them and keep clean sheets.

"What I can do is work very hard on the training ground with the players I've got to try and make them better."
