Chesterfield manager Paul Cook emphasised that his task to turn the club's fortunes on the pitch around will not happen overnight.

Cook refused to get drawn into commenting on individual performances at Barnet and asked that people have trust in what he is trying to do.

Speaking ahead of the F.A Cup First Round match against Hartlepool, he said: ""We've got to trust what I'm trying to do. We know over the next period of time there will be changes and I think it's a case of watch this space."

"[On training] Very bright, very good, the lads have really worked hard this week. They've had good tempo to their training and now we're looking forward to a fantastic cup tie on Saturday."

Although he admitted that he would love for Chesterfield to get to the third round of the F.A Cup, the former Accrington Stanley manager stated that it is more important they his side get's into a habit of winning game, regardless of the competition.

He said: "I think the important thing for us, and for the club, is when people speak about mentalities in football now.

"Habit is important in football, if you train hard and you prepare properly you will get a bit of luck. That's how football works for me.

"Going forward for us, the next game on Saturday, whether it be the F.A Cup or Bradford, we just want to win.

"The F.A Cup is a special competition, we want to be in that third round like everybody else, but we just want to start winning football games and it's important we do that.

"Our supporters need a lift. 5,600 turned up last Saturday and they need a lift.

"It's important that us as management and as players we give them something to shout about."
