“We know it’s going to be a really tough game”

Danny Webb believes that Chesterfield need to play their normal game when they travel to York Road to face Maidenhead United on Saturday.

Speaking to the media, he said: “We know it’s going to be a really tough game. We will go down there giving them the respect. We don’t tend to try and change our approach on games – home or away.

“We go down there and we play our normal game. We understand their threat, understand our record there, and try and put it right.

“We understand that we don’t have a good record there. We want to turn a corner with that record tomorrow.”

The Spireites secured a seventh win on the bounce against Rochdale on Tuesday.

It is the first time since 1937 that feat has been achieved by Chesterfield and Webb mentioned the benefit of such a winning run.

He said: “It was mentioned once or twice because it is a great stat. It’s enabled us to go five points clear at the top of the National League.

“That is the main benefit of those runs. The lads were aware of it, the staff were aware of it.

“Who’s to say that run can’t carry on? Some people say that sooner or later that it’s going to stop, but why should it?”

Mike Jones picked up his fifth yellow card of the season during the win against Rochdale.

Webb spoke about benefit of Jones serving the suspension as well about who could replace him, saying: “It’s disappointing to lose Mike but the benefit is that after Maidenhead, he starts from scratch with his cards.

“It gives a chance for ‘DJ’ [Oldaker], Ollie Banks to come in and play and have chance of keeping that shirt for themselves.”
