Wilson Hankering for Home Comforts

The Spireites got off to the perfect Proact start on Saturday, and now the manager wants the club to forge a much-improved home record across the season.

Last year the Spireites managed just six home wins during the year but Saturday's 3-1 Swindon Town win showed the potential for fluid attacks and more points this time around.

What's more, the Spireites have the chance to add to their Proact tally almost immediately with Walsall visiting the Proact on Tuesday night.

Danny Wilson commented on the need for his side to gather a better haul of point at home this campaign: "It's important, I think any team that was successful last year you'll see that their home form will have been good. That's something that every club has to address.

"From our point of view it's for our fans as well. You want to win at home and not some of the places where went last year, like Southend where we won 1-0 with only three or four hundred people watching us.

"We want to have good home performances and if we're going to add to the crowds coming in that's important to us."

Wilson also explained how winning some of the early games at home could make future Proact wins more likely.

He said: "What it does from the professional side of things is that it gives us confidence that we can challenge at the top end, hopefully teams come here and they'll possibly make it difficult and sit back and make it more of a defensive display for the away side.

"We feel that we'll have a lot of the ball and the play and we feel like we have players who can break teams now.

"Irrespective of who comes up against us we feel very confident that we'l create chances."

The manager also acknowledged the role of the home support in helping his side garner points this year, and he wants his side to get them shouting.

"Psychologically it was damaging last year and I think when the fans are apprehensive and they're quiet that doesn't help either.

"We need that support, hopefully now we can put last year to one side as we look to move on and move forwards."
