Maguire looks ahead to Eastleigh visit

Ahead of the Spireites’ midweek clash at home to Eastleigh, defender Laurence Maguire reflected on what was a big victory over Boreham Wood at the weekend.

Speaking to the media, he said: “It was a very pleasing win. We had a disappointing result a couple of weeks ago at Woking and I feel like we’ve bounced back really well.

“It was a big game with a big crowd. Second versus fourth is always going to be a big game and we came out on top with the three points.

“The fans are backing us a lot this season. There were around 5,500 on Saturday with not a lot of away supporters. It’s a big bonus for us on the pitch to hear the atmosphere.

“Now we’re looking towards tomorrow night against Eastleigh and hopefully we can get another three points on the board.”

Chesterfield take on Eastleigh on Tuesday, who sit in 13thplace, and the 24-year-old spoke about the significance of formulating a gameplan ahead of the fixture.

“They’ve started okay, and they had a good result at the weekend, which was big for them.

“We’ll get on the training pitch this morning. The gaffer will go through what they’re good at and what they’re weaknesses are.

“We’ll look at that and hopefully we’ll go into the game knowing what our gameplan is and come out with the three points.

“We’re looking forward to tomorrow night; hopefully we can get another three points towards where we want to be and that’s top of the league.”

The Spireites are eight home league games unbeaten after the 2-1 victory over Boreham Wood and Maguire stated the importance of making the Technique Stadium a fortress.

He said: “It’s a big thing. The gaffer keeps going on about the home record and making this place a fortress.

“If you want to be champions of this league, that’s a big factor. Eight unbeaten here now and hopefully it can continue tomorrow night.”
