Spireites Work to Resolve Problems

Tommy Wright’s assistant, Mark Crossley, admits that even though the Spireites picked up maximum points from their last two games, they have had to work on certain aspects of play over the last few days.

Crossley said: "We got the three points which we are delighted with. We probably didn't deserve them, we know that, but we set out to get six points from the two home games and that's what happened.

"The performances are not always going to be great but as long as we're getting points from those games, that's our main concern.

"We've had to work hard on certain areas that we thought we went wrong but Northampton won't play too much like Accrington. They are quite direct and I'm sure Aidy Boothroyd wouldn't mind you saying that.

"They do play in certain areas of the pitch, there's no doubt about that, but when they have the opportunity to put the ball in the box they do.

"If we can deal with the physical aspect of their game we feel that we can cause them a lot of problems on the break.

"All we've asked from the players is that they give us 110 per cent and I think they have probably given us more, to be honest. The response we've had from the players has been first-class and that's all we can ask for.

"There's no doubt about it - winning games breeds confidence, not only as a management team but the players and everyone around the place. It's a great feeling because everyone is on a high.”
