Richard Duffy has stressed that Notts County's weekend meeting with Mansfield Town will bring "a totally different kind of pressure".
The two Nottinghamshire rivals will lock horns at Meadow Lane early on Saturday afternoon, both eager to get three points to boost their automatic promotion ambitions.
Last time they faced off in Nottingham, Kevin Nolan had just taken over at County as he set about trying to stave off relegation from League Two.
“You look and read things like any normal person. You can’t look too far ahead because it will bite you on the bum,” he told the Nottingham Post. “Mansfield is the next game. Beating them is our aim.
“It’s a different kind of pressure than when we last played them here. I think we were bottom (they were second bottom) when Mansfield came to town, but we picked up a valuable point.
“It’s a totally different kind of pressure now. We were facing pressure not to fall out the Football League as the oldest league club. It’s different pressure now, but it’s a nice pressure.
“It’s a big occasion for both sets of fans. We’re big rivals and we’re both looking for the three points bearing in my mind where we both sit in the table. We’re both looking to get in that top three at the end of the season.”
