“It’s always a tough place to go”

Danny Webb gave his thoughts on FC Halifax Town ahead of the Spireites’ league trip to The Shay.

Speaking exclusively to 1866 Sport, he said: “They are a good team, a really good team. I went to watch them a few weeks ago and they’ve got a real mix of everything.

“We are a really honest team, and they are too. During the Pete Wild days, they were often in the play-off picture.

“They will be in there again and they won the FA Trophy last year. They’ve got threats all over.

“We know what’s on the line for us, but they also want to make sure they get that play-off place cemented. We’ll have to be aware of all of their threats whilst bringing our A-game as well.”

With Barnet playing Eastleigh on Tuesday night, the league could be secured before the start of play on Wednesday.

Webb assured that there will be no difference in targets set for the game if the Bees drop points.

He said: “We’ve prepared today and we’re going to be taking all of the lads there as it’s not a massive journey.

“We’ll have our pre-match meal and presentations just like we would for any other game. Then we want to go and win it.

“We know we are taking a few thousand supporters, which is no real shock. I’d rather Barnet slip up tonight and if not, we go and win it at Halifax tomorrow.”

Since Webb arrived at Chesterfield, themselves and Halifax have gone toe-to-toe on multiple occasions.

The Blues have beaten tomorrow’s opposition with play-off implications whereas the Shaymen have won some important league meetings.

Looking at this specific meeting, the assistant manager said: “I think in my first season here, we beat them in the last game of the season to get into the play-offs.

“It’s been a bit of a mixed bag.  We’ve had a bit of everything against Halifax. It’s always a tough place to go.

“I know people have spoken about the pitch not being in great condition but it’s going to be the same for both teams. So, let’s get on with it.
