The Spireites youth team look to make it three wins in a row when they travel to face Rotherham United in the EFL Youth Alliance on Saturday, kick-off 11am.

In their last fixture, the young Spireites claimed their second victory in succession after running out 2-1 winners over Burton Albion last weekend.

Youth coach Darren Molloy put forward that the result has meant there is a feel-good factor around the academy.

“We did really well. It’s nice for the lads to get a couple of wins after being on a bit of a bad run,” said Molloy.

“It helps them with training, to have a good, positive environment when they come in.

“It’s given them a bit more energy so it’s really good for everybody.”

The youth team are currently in seventh position in the Youth Alliance Northeast Division, and Molloy was quick to point out the importance of keeping the momentum going if they are to climb the table.

“Yes definitely. The lads are obviously positive coming off the back of the win so they’ll be looking to get another win,” Molloy explained

“They’ve trained well during the week. Hopefully, we can keep this winning run of games going now.”

The young Spireites face a Rotherham side that sit in twelfth place in the table and are eleven points behind Chesterfield.

However, Molloy stated that he is expecting a tough test for his side on Saturday, by saying: “They’ll be physical and they’ll look to play when they can.

“It’s similar to last week because it’s important that we make sure when they have the ball that it is in areas that we want them to have it.

“We’ll look to get on the front foot and dominate the ball as best we can.”


The fixture takes place at the following venue:

Roundwood Sports Complex,

Green Lane,
