Four straight defeats for the Spireites, but after a strong week of intense training, Danny Wilson says his men head to Charlton Athletic with high hopes of a turnaround.
The squad may have it's ongoing injury worries, but the manager thinks that in his number he has players with the character required to see an upturn in fortunes.
"I believe we've got players who are up for the fight," he said. "If I didn't believe that then it wouldn't be like it is; we put our strongest team out knowing that on our day we can beat anyone.
"One or two things happened on Saturday that I wasn't at all please with and I'm sure the players themselves weren't, so we're hoping to rectify that at the weekend. There's always another game as they say and always another day, so it's onwards and upwards now."
Without a midweek game this week the squad have "gone back to basics" in their training approach and Wilson thinks that a change in tack will lead to a change in results come Saturday at the Valley.
The manager explained: "We're not happy with the situation and the more we keep doing the same things the more likely we are to get the same results - so we need to start flipping things around about a bit.
"We're shaking things up, putting one or two people on a knife's edge with whether they're going to be playing or not playing because we can't continue putting in the same kind of performances and losing games."
