Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox probably does not need any persuading to try his hardest to beat Liverpool in the FA Cup tomorrow. His side take part in the glamour tie of the round, and his non-Legaue side will take on the mighty ‘Pool for the first time since 1970.
However, Cox may just have been given an extra incentive by betting firm Blue Square Bet, expecially from his new wife Natasha.
The bookies have decided to award Cox and his new bride with a free honeymoon to any destination in the world of their choice, should Mansfield be victorious at Field Mill tomorrow.
Given that Mrs Cox is presumably sat at home spinning a globe and making plans, woe betide any player that makes a mistake and costs the Stags the match. Whether or not she will be critically assessing her husband’s pre-match tactical plans is unclear.
