Jules: "It’s just a matter of patience."

15 September 2017

Chesterfield’s on loan defender, Zak Jules, can’t wait to pick up his first win in a Spireites shirt and hopes that he can do so on Saturday (3pm) against Accrington Stanley.

The Lancashire side sit in third place after an impressive start to the season, despite a 2-1 midweek loss to Grimsby Town.

But the defender believes that Chesterfield can ensure that the three points stay in north Derbyshire.

Jules said: “I play to win, and I want to win games, but it’s just a matter of patience.

“The players we have are good enough to kick on and win games, and we are performing well.

“Both us and Accrington like to play football, so it will be a footballing game. They are a decent side; they’ve kind of gone under the radar, as although they aren’t seen as one of the big clubs in this league, they keep getting the results.

“We’ve got to go into the game 100% up for it, and make sure we force a result and get the three points.”

Jules has featured in every game for the Spireites since joining in August, but has yet to see his side win a game.

Since his arrival, Chesterfield have played out two draws, which sandwiched a comprehensive defeat to Crewe last week.

The Scotland Under-21 international said: “The first game against Coventry was positive with a clean sheet, but then there was a not so positive result against Crewe, but I feel like we bounced back well on Tuesday night.

“The next step for us is getting that win, and hopefully turning things around and getting a run going.”

Chesterfield were minutes away from claiming their first away win of the season on Tuesday, before a late Brandon Hanlan header cancelled out Louis Reed’s fine strike.

And Jules spoke of his disappointment that he didn’t get off the mark with a win.

He said: “I was really frustrated that we didn’t win on Tuesday. It was positive considering what happened at the weekend, but I really wanted that win, so I was disappointed after the game.

“But the game gave us the chance to bounce back quickly from Saturday’s result.

“I feel like we’re going in the right direction and it’s only a matter of time before the wins start coming.”
