Glynn Snodin addressed the media prior to the Spireites’ clash against Aldershot Town on Saturday at the Proact and spoke about how important it is for players to show responsibility out on the pitch.

Snodin said: “You can have a bad game with the ball but not off it, you’ve got to give everything you can.

“We’ve done a lot in training, we look at everything and try everything so there’s nothing else we can do I can assure you. So, it’s down to whatever team is out there between the four white lines.

“Tactically yes it’s down to us to look at what is happening but when it’s about effort it’s about them.

“Hopefully we can get the negativity and bad luck out of our heads and be positive out there.

"We keep saying you’ve got to be brave on the ball as much as you work hard off it. But then when your mate is on the ball you need to show for it, you can’t hide from players.

“We are looking for a big response, we got it on Tuesday and now we’ve got to do it again.”

Aldershot have had a similar start to the season as the Spireites and Snodin is aware they will come hungry for a win but explained how important making the Proact a dreaded place to visit is for the season.

“From what we’ve seen, Aldershot will come and sit in but they’re quick on the counter which they like to do," he said.

"They’ve got one or two players in that final third that aren’t bad, but we need to get our tactics right and play in their end creating chances.

“Everyone wants to come here and win, we’re the lucky ones that play here but we have to make sure this is a hard place to beat. We’ve got to make this place a fortress.

“Every game is important, I know the situation because we’ve only won one, but we always make sure we don’t take anything lightly. It will be a tough game but hopefully, we come out on top.”

Snodin also spoke highly about the Spireites boss saying John Sheridan is striving to get his team back on track, by claiming: “He cares about this club, his job, he cares about football, he cares about the lads.

"He’s passionate about the game, he loves winning and always has.

“Even when I played with him in five-a-sides he always wanted to win. You have to bring that to players you work with – he wants them to have that desire, that fire in their bellies.

“He was still disappointed we didn’t win the game on Tuesday, we thought we did enough to win it. But they keep working, doing the basics and hopefully the luck changes.”

Snodin confirmed there were no fresh injury concerns and confirmed Anthony Spyrou is back available for selection, adding; “He’s back in the squad, it’s down to the manager to decide whether he’s put on the bench or starts. Anthony (Gerrard) and David (Buchanan) are coming along, Laurence (Maguire) is unfortunately the situation that it is, but everyone else is okay.”
