Margreitter: "It's Like a Family Here"

On loan defender Georg Margreitter is looking forward to getting back in the swing of first team football after arriving at Chesterfield from Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The 25 year-old Austrian explained how the move came about.

He said: "It happened really quickly. All of a sudden I heard about the offer and in my situation it was an easy decision because I just want to play football. 

"I heard the pattern of football they play at Chesterfield is about ball possession and they try to play, not just kick long balls and that's what I could see yesterday and today in the training."

Margreitter feels that the Spireites fluid attacking approach suits his own and is happy with how he has been welcomed to the club.

He said: "That's the way I like to play football and so far I have a really good impression. It's like a family here, the lads have made it quite easy for me to feel part of the team, although it was just my second session today on the training pitch.

"There's no time to over think things because tomorrow's the first game for me and I'm really looking forward to getting some competitive football again."

Despite his recent arrival at the Proact, Margreitter feels confident he'll be able to form a strong defensive partnership with captain Ian Evatt.

"I think we are on the same page, we had a few short talks so I'm positive that we're going to be fine tomorrow."

The defender hasn't played first team football this season, but feels he is ready to come in and make his debut for the Spireites.

Margreitter said: "I feel fit, I'm in a good physical shape. I had a long pre-season and I put my focus on my physical shape.

"Now it's about getting the feeling on the pitch again and getting into situations when you can't think and just have to react. I think with every game minute it gets better and better, and that's the main reason I really look forward to getting some game minutes."
