After Tuesday night’s 1-0 win over Wrexham, goalkeeper coach Mark Crossley spoke to Spireites Digital and began by expressing how pleased he was to see the team working as a unit.

“We love 1-0 wins, especially away from home,” he said.

“We were against a good team in a big stadium and a big crowd.

“I did the press the other week and we demanded more from them and over the last two performances we’ve got more.

“We’ve got to maintain it; we won’t get carried away.

“In the last few games especially, we’ve looked like a team that works for each other.

“I thought the back four defended excellently.”

Sam Wedgbury started his fifth game in a row for Chesterfield on Tuesday and played a pivotal role during the win in midfield.

Crossley was full of praise for the 30-year-old after the game, by stating: “Sam’s a great lad.

“He’s a voice in the dressing room and we like him for that.

“He’s a talker and he gets the lads going.

“He’s doing great.”

The Spireites face Wrexham again in their next fixture on Saturday, this time in the FA Cup.

Even after the victory, the goalkeeper coach was under no illusions that Saturday’s fixture will be a hard-fought contest.

“They’re a good team who are in a position where we would all expect them to be a little bit higher,” Crossley explained.

“Onto the FA Cup which will be a break from the league.

“It would have been nice to have an easier draw at home.

“It’s going to be a really difficult game but we are ready for it.”
