YOUTH TEAM: Friday Fixture for Spireites

25 February 2016

The youth team play on Friday lunch time this week as they seek a return to winning ways at home to York City.

The match at Staveley's Inkersall Road ground (S43 3JL) is open to all supporters tomorrow with kick-off set for 11am.

After last week's narrow 2-1 defeat to Doncaster Rovers, academy manager Mark Smith is looking for a rapid response from his squad.

He said: "Our feelings are that we need to get back to winning ways after last Saturday's disappointing result so really we've got to go with a team looking to compete and work hard for a result.

"We've got to defend set plays better and if we do take a lead we've got to show more concentration than we did with regards to conceding straight after.

"Really it'sĀ theĀ things that we talk about before every game, but as I've said before about younger players, they tend to go up and down.

"Hopefully we'll be able to achieve a level of consistency from individuals and that will make for a solid unit that can stick to game plans and see us through."
