Wiseman: "Getting a result at Crewe would be massive."

Chesterfield defender Scott Wiseman, hopes that the Spireites can build on last week’s draw with Coventry City when they travel to Crewe Alexandra tomorrow, 3pm.

The blues were forced to play out the last half hour of the game with ten men following Robbie Weir’s dismissal, but dug in under pressure to claim a point.

And now the Gibraltar international is targeting a consistent run of results.

He said: “Getting a result at Crewe would be massive, so far this season, after putting in one good performance we haven’t carried it on in the next game.

“It’s something we have to change; I think we showed it on Saturday, so hopefully as a team we’ve changed it now. That will be our focus going into the game.”

Weir’s sending off was Chesterfield’s third of the campaign and Wiseman says his side’s change in attitude helped them gain something from the match.

The former Scunthorpe United man said: “We needed that result on Saturday, it felt as good as a win to get the point under difficult circumstances, which we’ve had three times out of five league games this season.

“It’s never nice, but for us to regroup the way we did was fantastic and an improvement on the week before.”

Wiseman is familiar with current Railwaymen boss David Artell and expects a stern test from the side who sit eighth in Sky Bet League Two.

“I played with David for Gibraltar, so I know how he likes to set up - we’re expecting a tough game,” he said.

“They like to pass the ball around but they have added more direct options, so they can mix up the way they attack.”

Naturally a right-back, Wiseman has been deployed in various positions across Chesterfield’s back line and he insists that he’s happy to play in whatever role is asked of him.

“I’ve really enjoyed my time here so far,” Wiseman asserted.

“Throughout my career I’ve been played in different positions, because I can fill in for people if it’s required.

“It feels nice that the manager trusts me to play on my weaker side, or wherever he wants me to.”
