Snodin: "We don't fear anyone"

Ahead of Tuesday night's trip to Bromley, assistant-manager Glynn Snodin said that the Spireites are ready to bounce back following defeat on the weekend.

 Snodin acknowledged there are areas that must be improved but the Spireites are feeling positive ahead of the trip to Bromley.

He said: “There are always things to work on. We’ve only been here two months but there’s loads of things we need to work on. A little work every day will give them the information they need.

“We try and improve as individuals and as a team. Character is a big thing, there’s no issue with these boys and their character because they will give everything they’ve got but when we’ve got the ball we need to be a bit better with it.

“We had a chat at training, with two big games coming up we need to make sure we are ready, physically and mentally. We need to go and produce what we’ve been doing and hopefully that will happen tomorrow night.”

Bromley have lost their last three games, but Snodin insists the focus for Chesterfield is completely on themselves. 

“We just concentrate on us. We do look at form guides and we can see they’re having a bad run, but we just need to do what we’ve got to do.

“It will be a difficult game, it always is, but hopefully we will be resilient and hard to beat and go get a result to get back on a winning run.

"We don’t fear anyone whatsoever, it’s just about managing the game.”

The next two upcoming fixtures for the Spireites (Bromley and Havant & Waterlooville) are both away from home. Chesterfield’s away form has been strong under John Sheridan’s management, but the Spireites assistant manager spoke of how important it is to improve their home performances.

“We can’t understand why we can’t make the Proact a fortress. We haven’t been out-played by anybody, nobody has played through us. I don’t think there’s anybody in this league who've hammered us.

“When we’ve lost games it’s our own fault, we need to get them mistakes out of our game and we will win games. 

“People keep saying it’s pressure at home, but ours is just stress and frustration. It’s a game of football, it’s something you love as a kid and you should want to express yourself as an individual and as a team."

Snodin confirmed there are no fresh injuries - just a couple knocks - and told the media that Alex Kiwomya is nearing a return, adding: “All is good, we got a few niggles that you get, especially getting to the end of the season, but everyone is okay.

“Kiwomya has improved. He trained Friday and trained today so he’s looking good at the moment.”
