It's Up To Us

Tommy Wright believes that Chesterfield have to focus on their own performance to get three points when they face Wycombe on Saturday.

Both sides are looking for a win to kick-start their season after suffering relegation from League One last season.

Wright is yet to lose as caretaker-manager and he won't come much closer to a victory than he did at York last week.

A 95th minute equaliser denied the Spireites their first league win of the season and Wright admits that it was tough to take.

Speaking to Spireites Player ahead of the game, he said: "The attitude and commitment of the players was first class; we can play better though there's no doubt about that.

"I thought second half on the counter attack we could have produced better.

"If everything was perfect then I probably wouldn't be standing here as manager; we've got to improve but I think we are heading in the right direction."

Wycombe are sitting just one place above Chesterfield on four points and Tommy is keen to stress that, although he wants to win, nothing will be won or lost on Saturday.

He said: "They've not had the best of starts but as I've said before its a marathon not a sprint and i'm sure come the end of the season they'll be knocking on the door.

"It'll be a difficult game but as I've said to players on many occassions, it's up to us.

"It's how we perform, we'll do our homework on the opposition, but let us do our business and im sure we'll be good enough to win the game."

Saturday will be Tommy's fourth game in charge of the Spireites as caretaker-manager and he admitted that he is loving every minute of it.

"I'm loving every minute of it; apart from Saturday night, Saturday night was a long night.

"I've really enjoyed being the number one, the players have supported me well, everybody at the club has supported me well and I've had a lot good wishes.

"I think people are hoping that I do well; I get that feeling."
