Manager previews Yeovil match

Ahead of the Spireites’ National League game against Yeovil Town at Huish Park, manager John Pemberton spoke to the media.

Commenting on the opponents, he said: “They’re a big club, they have some great players on paper and they’re a great footballing side. It will be a really tough game again.

“They are a very good football side and they will cause us problems if we are not at it defensively. Is it a good time to go play them? Only time will tell, I think.

“We are looking forward to the game and if we can do what we do well, I think we will give them a game.

“We’ve looked at Yeovil and we know what they’re about. So we look to do what we need to do and do it well.”

Chesterfield appointed a new chief scout in former player Paul Lemon during the week. Pemberton talked about the importance of the role.

“It’s something I felt the club needed,” he said. “For the club it’s a position I have felt since I’ve been here that we needed. We need someone to identify players for the club.”

Milan Butterfield scored his first goal for the Spireites against Stockport County and Pemberton feels that the Bermuda international is constantly improving.

“He is getting better. I think it is just a tough league for people. He is 22-years-old and he is still understanding what the level is.

“He has been a bit up and down, he is quite a laid-back character, but he is understanding more what this league is about and he is an intelligent guy. He is definitely improving.”
