Rowe: “It’s a tasty fixture”

The Spireites welcome the in-form team in the National League as Yeovil Town visit the Technique Stadium on Saturday (3pm) and James Rowe believes the game will an interesting one between two sides that have had similar seasons.

He said: “They’re having a similar trajectory to us. They have a manager there that has some experience in the league.

“We won’t be taking them lightly; we never do. We know what’s to come. I think it will be our toughest test yet.

“It’s a tasty fixture. I think both teams have got individuals that can change the game on its head. At any moment. It’s a game I’m looking forward to.”

During the week, Rowe signed an extension to his contract and has thanked the board, staff and fans for their support.

“I would like to thank the board particularly Mike Goodwin, John Croot and Martin Thacker. I’d like to thank the board for showing their faith and extending my contract.

“The staff have been fantastic here. It’s very much a team effort and I lead the process. It’s very much I’m a voice for them and some of their decision making has been key.

“And lastly, the fan base. The welcome they have given me on social media and the messages over the past two days have been outstanding.”

With a new contract and the rest of the season ahead of Chesterfield, Rowe believes that there is more still to be achieved this season, but they can’t get carried away.

“We’ve got to keep our feet on the floor,” Rowe said. “Nothing’s been achieved yet; we’ve just got ourselves into a position where we can look upwards.

“We know where we are. We’re only 14-15 weeks into the process, but we are probably ahead of where we though we would be, and we’ve got a fantastic opportunity to achieve something this year.”
