Following Saturday’s draw with Bradford City, Chesterfield face relegation threatened Plymouth Argyle on Tuesday night.


The Pilgrims are currently 19th in the league and only three points above relegation; however, the south-west team have found form recently, defeating teams such as Cheltenham Town and Exeter City. 

When asked about Tuesday night’s opposition, Paul Cook said to Spireites Player: “On their day they can beat any team in the league so we’re fully aware of the threat of Plymouth.

“Plymouth know they’ve still got a bit of bother at the bottom. The best way for them to get out of that is to win football games,” he said.

The game against Plymouth also sees the return of former Spireites boss  John Sheridan. Under Sheridan, Chesterfield won the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and gained promotion as champions of League Two. “I’d like to see him [Sheridan] get a great reception,” said Cook.

“I think John’s history and his managerial record at this club will show what he’s done, which was obtain a championship winning team and a cup final win at Wembley.”

Two of Chesterfield’s three remaining games are at home and the manager knows the Spireites support will help the team’s push for promotion. 

Cook said: ”People forget that our fans come here to support us, they get behind us really, really well and tomorrow [Tuesday] night will be no different. Tomorrow night’s got a lot of importance for both teams, at both ends of the table.”
