Chesterfield Manager, Paul Cook, feels that the club should focus on getting the three points in their first home game against Cheltenham.

After a good result away at Bury last weekend and a positive performance against Leeds in the Capital One Cup, Chesterfield look to continue their positive start against the Robins at the Proact Stadium, but Cook believes it will not be an easy game. 

He said: “Cheltenham are a rock solid League Two team with a manager in Mark Yates that’s been there, seen it, done it at such a young age.  The most important thing is we don’t sit on Wednesday’s game at think we’ve landed.”

The Manager may have a selection headache after both Marc Richards and Eoin Doyle have started one game and scored once, but he believes that the competition in the squad is healthy. He added: “There’s nothing better than confident players and at the minute we have 2.5 strikers who are confident. When I can get three I’ll be a happy manager.”

Liam Cooper will be on the bench as he recovers from a minor injury and Ian Evatt is still finding fitness but Cook feels that with a strong bench, players will have to keep their effort levels high to stay in the team. He said: “When you get the shirt in our team you need to play well to keep it because there are players waiting to take it off you.”

With the first home game of the season on the horizon, Cook hopes his side’s quality will shine through and get the result the fans want.

“We’ve played two games this year, our supporters have gone home from two grounds happy. They are coming here for the first time tomorrow and it’s important that we send them home happy," stated the gaffer.
