Wright Looking For Momentum

Chesterfield picked up their first league win of the season on Saturday, after a 3-1 victory over Wycombe Wanderers at the Proact Stadium.

The visitors were reduced to 10-men after Marc Richards was pulled down as he was going through on goal.

Goals from loanee Chris Atkinson, Jack Lester and Sam Hird sealed the points for caretaker-manager Tommy Wright, who will now be looking to build on that result with a win over Accrington Stanley.

Speaking ahead of the game, Wright indicated that he was looking for his side to continue the run of form shown in the weeks he has been in charge.

He said: "Since I've taken over we've had a bit of momentum, we've picked points up and won a cup game.

"It would be great to get back-to-back wins and push up the table."

Tuesday's opponents have enjoyed a good start to the season and currently sit fifth in the table, four points above the Spireites, but the Scotsman is only concerned with how his side performs.

"It'll be difficult, they've not lost away from home and they had a good result on Saturday," he said.

"If we apply ourselves and play like we did [against Wycombe], especially in the first-half, I'm confident we can win the game.

"It'll be a tough game but I'm concerned with how we play and if we apply ourselves and show the same commitment, work-rate and quality we showed on Saturday, we can win the game."
