The Spireites suffered defeat in their final pre-season friendly to Burton Albion at the Proact, and after the game assistant manager Glynn Snodin stated that the players will gain experience from Saturday’s fixture.
“It was that end to end it could have been six all at half-time,” he said.
“They’ll learn from this just like they learnt from Sheffield United and from Rotherham.
“The main game is going to be in seven days’ time.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do on the training field during the week.”
On-loan striker Anthony Spyrou opened the scoring to notch his second pre-season goal after impressing John Sheridan during Tuesday night’s clash against Sheffield United.
Speaking about the 19-year-old after the match, Snodin claimed that the forward will be a menace in the National League, by saying: “He looks a good player.
“His movement is very good and he can score goals.
“He’ll be a threat at this level.”
Anthony Gerrard didn’t feature in the matchday squad on Saturday and when asked about the defender Snodin explained that his absence was due to an injury.
“He’s had a little injury on his hamstring,” Snodin said.
“Hopefully he won’t be out for too long and he’ll be back firing.”
The Spireites host Dover in their maiden National League game in only a week’s time and the assistant manager was adamant that starting places are still up for grabs.
“There’s nobody guaranteed at the moment,” Snodin put forward.
“It’s going to be a difficult decision to make.”
