Following successive win in our past two National League games, the gaffer is hoping to continue that good form against Martin Allen’s side.
“We’ve had a couple of good results recently; performances have been good and we need to continue to do that if we stand a chance of getting something up there.
It’s quite an expectant crowd, obviously Martin Allen a good budget and a good club with some good players and are on a good run at the moment, it’s going to be tough, we are going to have to be at our best to get anything from the game.”
Chesterfield’s form has been consistent over recent weeks having drawn each of their last six league games and the gaffer knows how important it is to be at it to come home with a victory tomorrow night.
“They’ll be trying to go and win the game, they haven’t won at home since August so they’ll want to get over that hurdle.
Martin Allen’s a friend of mine and he’s very hard working, he’ll have his team at it, pressing and getting all over the pitch and trying to keep the fans on side.
We’ll be prepared for that, hopefully we will be able to frustrate them and try to perform to the levels that we have and that’s the key to it (getting a result).”
And by keeping the crowd quiet and frustrated, the Hawks can stand a better chance of getting three points.
“Expectations (for Chesterfield) were to get promoted, it is still possible, it’s a league club really, but all the time they are where they are it is difficult for them and we need to make it as difficult for them tomorrow and use that to our advantage.
The crowd helps but they can also be a hinderance sometimes, so for me it’s a game where we have to stay in the game for as long as we can and hopefully get a point or three.”
