Tommy On Morecambe Clash

1 October 2012

Tommy Wright says that his side must be "up for it" if they are to return from the north-west with maximum points on Tuesday night.

The Spireites travel to the Globe Arena to face Morecambe in their first of three consecutive away fixtures.

The Shrimps are going through a rough patch in the early stages of the season, having failed to win in their previous five encounters.

Wright watched Chesterfield take a point at home to Torquay at the weekend, a point that, in his eyes, perhaps should have been more.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, he said: "Yes definitely [two points dropped]. I've watched the game a couple of times on DVD and I thought we did really well. Better than what I thought after the events of Saturday.

"Everything we worked on in the week to counter-act Torquay worked because O'D [Richard O'Donnell] never had a save to make. But obviously the mistake changes the whole picture of the weekend.

"But I was pleased, I was pleased that what we tried to instruct the player to do, they took on board and did it well."

Despite not tasting victory in five matches, Tommy is not underestimating Tuesday's opponents and knows that it'll be a tough test for his side.

"It'll be a difficult game; they've got one or two players who I know from my time at Oldham", Wright said.

"I know if we're not up for it [it'll be difficult], but we've been up for every game so far.

"We are unbeaten in nine and we've got a lot of positives to take from that run."

"It's always a case of get what you can away from home, and even at home, but we're definitely going to win the game, we always do."
