‘It will be a really tough one’

Assistant manager Danny Webb is hoping for that the Spireites will replicate their result in the reverse fixture when they take on Barnet on Saturday.

Speaking to the media, he said: “Hopefully, in terms of the outcome. It was a Friday night when we played them early on. They got back in the game, and it was a bit nervy before we started to dominate.

“I thought it was a good game for the neutral and I thought they gave us a really tough time for larger periods of that fixture.

“Before their manager came in, they were in freefall. Since taking the reins, he has showed experience. He’s got them organised and playing a certain way.

“I’m hoping for the same outcome. We want to go there and get the three points, but the league position doesn’t lie. They are sitting fifth and rightly so. It will be a really tough one.”

Lucas Covolan kept his place in goal against Altrincham and kept a clean sheet in the narrow win.

Webb spoke about the good selection headache that comes with two ‘number one’ goalkeepers.

He said: “I’m not sure what’s going to happen at Barnet. I haven’t really been part of a team that has been blessed with two number ones.

“Whoever plays, we’re confident. Lucas did ever so well the other night and I thought Ross did ever so well before that.

“We’ve got training today and we’ve talked about things this morning. Obviously, the manager will have the final say on that.”

Striker Danny Rowe, who returned to the club in early January following the expiry of his loan at Fylde, has had a positive step on his road back to recovery.

Webb stated: “Danny Rowe joined in full training yesterday for the first time since he has come back from Fylde. He showed glimpses of the Danny Rowe we saw when we first signed him.

“He won’t be involved down at Barnet. Hopefully, he can get fitter and give us and the gaffer food for thought. We’ve got some good centre-forwards at the club.”
