Mark Crossley believes that Chesterfield's recent run of results has brought a buoyant mood to the Spireites camp.

Chesterfield took maximum points from two home games in three days, defeating Wycombe Wanderers and Accrington Stanley at the Proact Stadium.

Speaking ahead of the clash with Northampton Town, Crossley said: "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, everyone is on a high; we're certainly on a high and so are the players.

"The response we've had from the players has been first class and that's all we can ask for."

Despite not tasting defeat since taking charge, the management team are under no illusions that they rode their in mid-week against Stanley.

He said: "Obviously we've had to work hard on certain areas where we thought we went wrong [on Tuesday]. But Northampton won't play too much like Accreditation.

"At the end of the day we got the three points which we are delighted with, we probably didn't deserve them, we know that but at the end of the day we got them.

"We set out to get six points from the two home games and that's what happened."

Saturday's opponents have enjoyed a good start to he campaign, picking up 11 points and sitting eight in the table.

The Cobblers beat Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday night and Crossley knows that the Spireites will need to be at their best if they are to come away with three points.

"They [Northampton] are quite direct and I'm sure Aidy Boothroyd wouldn't mind you saying that," Crossley said.

"They do play in certain areas of the pitch, there's no dount 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."
