Chesterfield manager, Paul Cook believes his squad is fully prepared for their visit to Spotland on Saturday.

After two consecutive league victories, the Spireites boss isn’t getting carried away, admitting it’s a marathon, not a sprint. 

Speaking to Spireites Player, Cook said: “It’s a long old journey we’re on; we’ve got 44 more games which is a hell of a lot, a lot more points to play for.

“There will certainly be highs along the way, especially with the brand of football we are playing, but there might be a low or two.”

The Liverpudlian believes the squad is prepared for the battle against Rochdale and is expecting a good game at the weekend.

He added: “We’ve seen them a couple of times. Keith sets his teams up very well and they’ve got some good players. They will set up to play football and it’s going to be a good game.

“We’re well equipped for what’s coming, we’re very well equipped for any team, any formation that’s coming at us. We’ll go there like we do, to win three points.

“We’ll go there on Saturday to play an open brand of football that will attract people to the game and to score some goals.”

Having taken over a thousand fans to Bury, and two thousand to Leeds, the 46-year-old is expecting the Spireites faithful to travel in their numbers again, creating an intimidating atmosphere.

“We have great support and the club is very well run. Our fans are fantastic; they travel away from home in great numbers.

“The support at Leeds was amazing. I know what we’ll get from our fans on Saturday; I just hope we can replicate it back to them,” said the Chesterfield boss.
