Cook On Wanderers Test

3 January 2013

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook is hoping his side can stop giving team's an advantage in games in order to pick up results.

The Spireites have made a habit in recent matches of going behind, which has resulted in dropped points from matches that Chesterfield have dominated.

Cook is hoping that the Spireites can get off to a good start in their upcoming fixtures and pick up points to push up the table.

Speaking to Spireites Player ahead of the game, he said: "At Accrington we've created enough chances for any normal person to know that you should be getting something out of the game and obviously going down to ten men against Morecambe is a disappointment.

"You know I'm in to stats and that, that's 11 times at home the opposition have scored, out of 12. We continually let team's score a goal, whether it be Burton going 1-0 up, Oxford going 1-0 up, Morecambe going 1-0 up.

"There's a trait that when we score first we go on and win games quite well.

"When we scored against Cheltenham early on, Hartlepool early on, Port Vale. We go on to dominate the games and look very good. When we end up chasing games, we don't look as good.

"So it's important that we get back to what we are good at, which is scoring first and dominating games.

Chesterfield's looked set for a fruitful Christmas period after the impressive 2-0 win away at Port Vale in December but results didn't follow as expected," Cook added.

"Once we come away from Port Vale, we were all very buoyant of where we were going. Since then our form hasn't took off like we thought we would.

"There's always contributing factors to that. My job as manager is to try and get the results as quickly as possible and it's something we are looking forward to doing at Wycombe on Saturday."
