The Spireites face a tough game against Cheltenham who are currently 3rd in the table. Spireites will be hoping to start better than they did against Oxford, conceding in the first minute. Cheltenham scored in the first minute at Rotherham, although they ended up losing 4-2. This will be a big test for Cook and his Spireites knowing they will need to be at their best if they going to get a result.
Mark Yates speaking to his clubs website said: ‘Having a game on a Tuesday is perfect so we can put a few things right and all the players are ready to go. I know we haven’t got a good record against Chesterfield but it’s all about this group putting that right.
Cook speaking the clubs website yesterday: They’re a good club, a strong club going in the right direction, it really is a difficult game for us tomorrow night but one we expect to win.’
