The Spireites manager won't allow previous results to affect the final push for promotion.

Chesterfield make the trip to Fleetwood on Saturday for what will be the last away fixture of the regular season and anything less than three points will all but end the Spireites' promotion hopes this for this year. 

Paul Cook remains focused on the job at hand and won't let Tuesday's defeat at home to Plymouth define Chesterfield's season: “People say the Plymouth result had cost us. It hasn’t cost us. We never won, so we never got three points," he said, speaking to Spireites Player. “Over a season, one game will never influence your season."

Fleetwood, are themselves, within reach of the play-offs and with six points from their final two games the Cod Army could finish in seventh place. “They’ve got some really good players at the club. The chairman there has invested heavily in the playing staff,” said Cook. 

“I think the most important thing is that we sort ourselves out, I’ve said that in the past and I’ll always maintain that.

“Tomorrow, we put a team out that still has a chance of getting to Wembley and if that doesn’t stimulate you then I give in.”
