Tommy Lee is Up for the Cup

The Spireites head into the second round of the FA Cup with the daunting task of an away match at Stadium MK.

Chesterfield number 1 Tommy Lee is looking forward to the FA Cup Clash with MK Dons at the weekend and says his team mates are already dreaming of the next round and the big clubs.

He said: “The lads support the Liverpools, the Manchester Uniteds, the Chelseas, teams like that. That’d be a dream tie for the club but if we don’t get one of the big teams we’d like a home tie. 

"Before that, we’ve got a very tough game on Saturday to get through first.”

The 28 year-old stopper is confident that the Spireites can produce a good result against the Dons and says that preparing for a cup match is slightly different to how they go about preparing for a league game.

He said: “It’s similar to the point where it’s a game of football, but there is a different preparation because there is that instant reward rather than a season which is a long process. 

"Three points here and three points there is good but if you win in the second round you could get a big team in the draw on Monday night, so I suppose in that sense it’s a little bit different.

 “If you want to get far in the competition you’ve got to beat good teams at some point so we’ll go down there full of confidence.

“They had a good result at home at the weekend but we know they’re definitely beatable and I think we showed that when we played them earlier in the season, even though we didn’t get the right result.”

Lee himself has reached the third round before, but things could have gone better on his own match of the day.

“The furthest I’ve got personally is the third round,” said Lee. “When I was at Macclesfield and we played Chelsea. We were beaten by seven and I was sent off - so it wasn’t the best to be honest."

Lee and his Spireites team mates will be hoping for a better result on Saturday, and hoping to go into hat for the third round.
