The Spireites youth team are also on their travels on Saturday, as they come up against Morecambe in the EFL Youth Alliance Cup, kick-off 1pm.

Ahead of Saturday’s game, youth coach Miguel Llera, reflected on his side's goalless draw away to Doncaster Rovers last week.

He said: “I think the point was a fair result because they were better than us in the first half. We were better than them in the second half.

“It was a game where both teams didn’t have many chances. We had a couple of chances, but a point was fair.”

Looking towards the game at Morecambe, Llera mentioned that it is important that his side come back home with a win, as they lost their first EFL Youth Alliance Cup match to Wigan.

Coach Llera said: “We go to win because in the first game of the cup unfortunately we lost. We have to go there to win the game.

“Every game we go into we try to win, but if we want to go through to the next round we have to win.”

Llera also explained that the cup competition is a positive experience for his players, as it gives them a chance to test themselves outside of their region.

Llera said: “It’s a good chance to play against another category three team around the UK. It is a good chance to go out of the area to prove how good we can be.

“It is a good test for the lads. We have to travel a little bit further away, but every time we can compete against another category three team it’s going to be an interesting game.”


Tomorrow's match will take place at the following venue: -

Parkside Road
