“The atmosphere in the group is really positive

The Spireites travel to the Walks to play King’s Lynn Town on Saturday (3pm) and James Rowe believes that their opponents are going to be tough to brush aside.

He said: “Let’s focus on these next games. First and foremost, we’ve got to overcome a stubborn King’s Lynn team that, despite their position, have picked up two wins from their last two games.

“We know what’s coming. They are tactically fluid as well; they change their shape in games to get results. They did that on Monday, got two goals and won the game.

“We know the difficulties that face us imminently. We’ve got to be ready for that and I’m sure that we are.

“We’ve trained superbly. The atmosphere in the group is really positive and they are working their socks off for the club. That will only serve us well in these games.”

Haydn Hollis was forced off with an injury in the first half of the game against Eastleigh and Rowe gave an update on the defender’s situation.

“It’s a rupture so it’s a serious one,” Rowe said. “We thought it at the time. It’s an unfortunate one and one he didn’t deserve with his form.

“We move forward and try and be as positive as we can. We will give him the environment he needs to recover and the support. I’m sure he will come back stronger knowing the character he is.

Chesterfield moved into the National League play-offs after the results over the Easter Bank Holiday fixtures and Rowe thinks that they are on track with their goals.

The manager backed that up, saying: “Yes, of course we are pleased. We jumped up a place to sixth and secured that place without playing. We’ve got to be happy with that.

“We are on track to what we want to achieve on May 29. Can we get in the play-off spots as quick as possible, secure that place and then look up even more?

“It’s going to be a tough ask though because there are some really great teams around us. It’s going to be difficult but worthwhile if we get there.”
