With a losing slump to snap, the Spireites squad have this week been given a series of extra training sessions targeting a return to form at Charlton on Saturday.
Monday and Tuesday heralded double sessions at the training ground in Hasland, with an 8am extra session on Wednesday morning - normally a day set aside for squad recovery.
Danny Wilson spoke about the reasons behind the rise in work rate: "It's been very tough, it's been very demanding. We've asked a lot of questions to the players though the week, both on and off the training ground.
"It's been very intense in what we've had to do, we've stripped everything back and gone back to complete basics of how we play and how we expect the players to react in certain situations and it's been very repetitive.
"So in that respect it's been very good. It's put a lot of things back into their minds again, basic things that maybe one or two had forgotten about."
Captain Gary Liddle thinks that the extra work was needed and hopes to see the fruit of the squad's labour in the capital.
He said: "We've had a long week's training, an unusual week from what we normally have and we're in a determined mood to try and put right this little run we're on at the moment.
"We normally get a rest day during the week but this week we haven't, we've been in every day which I think's been needed. It's not a punishment, it's more that to look at the tactical side and the stuff the manager wants to get across with the shape of the team.
"We've done a lot of work on that this week. The manager's said that it's not a week that he wants to do too often, but this week with the run it's changed things a little bit."
