Cook Hoping To Address Away Form

17 January 2013

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook is hoping that his side can start to pick up points away from home in order to make a push towards the promotion places.

The Spireites have been beaten in their last three away trips, two of which Cook's men dominated for large parts.

This weekend sees Chesterfield travel down to Torquay United who themselves will be looking to push towards the play-offs.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, he said: "We want to address our away form because if we are to get where we want to be, we must pick points up away from home.

"Our home record won't get any team there. We must pick points up away. 

"So it's something that we want to start addressing at Torquay and as I've said the lads [who started against Northampton] have earned the right to go again."

The Spireites boss is hoping that a good result at Plainmoor can be the catalyst in putting together a run which could see Chesterfield assert themselves in the promotion picture.

He said: "If you want to get to a place in the league where you think you should be then you must win games. You must have little unbeaten runs and it's something that we've been challenging the lads with this week.

"We want to get something at Torquay and it's important that we come back on that coach not being beaten."
