Evatt: "Things can change very quickly"

31 October 2016

Spireites defender Ian Evatt is positive his side can quickly halt their run of losses after pinpointing Saturday's Charlton match as the best performance in recent weeks.

The late Valley loss extended the CFC losing run to five games, but Evatt says that the nature of the display in the capital has buoyed the squad ahead of Tuesday's trip to Coventry City.

"The lads have come in very positively this morning from what was a very good away performance where we were unfortunate to come away with nothing," said Evatt.

"Confidence certainly has been an issue and I think whenever you're in a spell of losing games confidence is effected. 

"We've got a number of young players who probably haven't been in situations like this before so it's important that senior players like myself who have been through these kind of results rally round the lads and make sure we play with confidence.

"On Saturday we certainly did that, and hopefully we can do that again on Tuesday."

With the Spireites currently sat second bottom of a tight Sky Bet League 1 table, Evatt reckons that it's the narrow margins that are currently costing his side.

"Once you get on a run in this league it's unforgiving," he said. "Every team can beat everyone else so it's hard once you get on that two, three or four game losing spell and it can carry on to larger numbers.

"Things can change very quickly and a lot of positives can be taken from the Charlton performance because I thought that's the best we've looked for a good few weeks."
