“The players are in a good place”

First-team coach Danny Webb acknowledges that Yeovil Town will be tough opponents in Saturday’s rearranged fixture but says that the spirit in the squad is good as the Spireites look to extend their unbeaten start to the season.

Commenting on the challenge in store, Webb said: “They’re dangerous on the counter, they’re strong and they’re good from set-pieces.

“It’s two teams on a good run so for the neutral I think it’s going to be a helluva game and hopefully one that swings in our favour.

“We’ve got to go there and show the same sort of fight and hunger that’s got us the points on the board.

“I’m sure that our footballing ability will shine through but we have to do those basics as well, to go somewhere like Yeovil and get a result.

“The players are in a good place. The atmosphere’s good and the vibe is good around the dressing room.”

More than 400 miles will be clocked up during the return journey but Webb points out that the travelling is all part of the job.

“Yes, it’s a long trip but you’ve got to do that long trip sooner or later,” he said. “The boys are used to it – they’ve done it their whole careers. We go overnight and we prepare right. The preparation is very good.

“It might be a bit of a pain in the backside for all the supporters to get on a coach again but I’m sure if we go down there and get three points, they’ll be happy drinking their beer on the way home!”

Laurence Maguire could be back in contention for a place in the side after being ruled-out of the Barnet match.

“He wasn’t quite right for the other night so he’s in training today and we’ll see how he is,” said Webb.
