Ariyibi: "We'll get our confidence back and be ready for Crewe"

18 February 2016

Winger Gboly Ariyibi impressed again in the ten-man 1-1 draw at Colchester United on Tuesday, showing the development apparent in his game.

With Gary Liddle sent off just 17 minutes in, Ariyibi was tasked not just with adding much-needed incision for the undermanned away side, but also to track back and make attacking as hard as possible for the opposition.

The 21-year-old commented on his role in the challenging situation: "We were quite restricted when we went down to ten men but as you could see I tried to still beat my man and give us energy down my flank.

"I think today was my first game where I've played straight after a game three days before so it was different for me.

"It's nice to show a bit of aggression and we're all showing that we want it and want to do well for the club."

With another crucial game now just two days away as the Spireites host Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, Ariyibi is already looking forward to the challenge.

"The goal gave us a big lift and from now we've got everything to fight for. We'll get our confidence back and we'll be ready for Crewe.

"The fans were excellent today and hopefully they'll give us that same lift on Saturday. We're going to need everybody now, we'll recover well and are pleased to get this result - it shows that we have great character."
