The Spireites youth team travel to face Lincoln City in their next EFL Youth Alliance fixture on Saturday, kick-off 11am.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game, youth coach Miguel Llera explained that his young side are going to Lincoln to get all three points.

“They are performing well. I think if we go there and show that then we can get the three points,” he said.

“It’s what the lads have been working for so we are going to go there to get the win.”

The young Spireites are only two points behind Grimsby Town at the top of the Youth Alliance North East Division heading into the Lincoln game.

Even though his team are close to the top of the table, Llera insisted that they need to go on a good run and continue to perform before thinking about reaching top spot.

Coach Llera commented: “I think we need to start to go on a good run because we have been drawing the last couple of games.

“We performed really well last week. We created a lot of chances and managed the game, but we couldn’t take our chances.”

Last time out the youth team drew with Notts County in a game which ended goal-less at Sheffield Graves.

Llera stated that he was happy with the team’s performance in their last fixture, but mentioned that they have been perfecting the players finishing in the week so they can make the most of their dominance during games.

“We have been working on the final third and hopefully they’ve taken on board what we have been doing in training,” he said.

“The offensive side of the game is the most difficult when there are more bodies to get past.

“It makes it difficult to score but it’s part of the game. We have been working in the week on attacking.”

Young defender Jamie Sharman signed a professional contract a couple of weeks ago and has been receiving praise for his recent performances for the youth team.

Llera pointed out that Sharman’s performances have been impressing him since the begin of the campaign, and declared that’s why he deserved to sign a professional deal with the Spireites.

“From the beginning of the season he has been consistently performing really well and his standard has been really high,” commented Llera.

“That’s why the club has given him a professional contract because he has been performing really well.

“What we are trying to do with him is to try and keep him performing at that level consistently.

“Hopefully if he keeps performing like that then the manager will give him the chance in a friendly or cup game.”


The fixture takes place at the following venue:
