Second bottom of League Two Mansfield have appointed former midfielder Paul Holland as manager at Field Mill until the end of the season.
The 34-year-old, who played for the Stags between 1991 and 1995, had been caretaker manager for the four matches since Billy Dearden's departure. Dearden was sacked following the 4-0 home defeat to Rochdale on March 8.
Mansfield chief executive Stephen Booth said: "We have had three good performances out of four matches under Paul's reign, and I have thought long and hard about this decision.
"I am confident in Paul's abilities and hope that everyone associated with the club can get behind him."
