The Chesterfield youth team make the short trip to Yorkshire to take on Doncaster Rovers in a cup match tomorrow.

The game kicks-off at 11am at Rovers' Cantley Park training ground.

Coach mark Smith anticipates a tough test.

He said: "It's a re-arranged cup game and we're expecting Doncaster to be one of the stronger teams in the division so we're not expecting an easy game. 

"We go up there full of confidence, we lost the game last week but the manner in which we played and created chances was good. We've had a chat and I said that if they can reproduce the intensity but then also take some of the chances we'll do well.

"We work to a syllabus so the week is governed by the plans we make and what we're going to do. It covers all areas and it's made to help them become better players and to develop.

"This week we've done the defending, we've done the attacking and we've done the transition work and we've done the match preparations today. 

"We've looked sharp and lively with a lot of quality at times as well, so we're looking forward to the game."
