Chris Wilder previews Chesterfield

16 November 2012

The manager looks forward to tomorrow's game

United travel to Chesterfield tomorrow in good spirits and ready to start putting a string of results together on a consistent basis. Manager Chris Wilder is confident that his side can add that vital final ingredient to their game and once they do that they are more than capable of putting a string of results together to climb the table. However the United boss is aware that tomorrow’s opponents are also more than capable of putting a run together of their own:

“They will be the same as us: a touch disappointed by their start but knowing there is still a hell of a long way to go and everything to play for,” Chris told Yellow Player. “Torquay had a point more than we have got at this stage last season and went to the last game of the season for automatic promotion, Crewe had a point less and ended up playing League One football. 

“There is still a lot to play for and we are all striving for that consistency. We know that we are good enough to win two, three or four games on the bounce, and I think Chesterfield will be the same.

“They have a new manager, excellent players and a lot of players coming back for Saturday so their squad will be boosted by that and it’s important that we go there and perform. Maybe there is a touch of pressure off us away from home and we can go and express ourselves, but we know we will be dangerous opponents on the day.”

United go into the game on the back of a 0-0 draw against Torquay last time out but played well in that game and should really have taken more than a point from it.

“I’ve always said that the players don’t try and mask when they’re not playing well, and they’re not jumping through hoops in terms of the result last Saturday, but they know they did enough to win and they just need to believe in the process. 

“We believe in what we’re doing and dominated a team from start to finish, tee to green. Unfortunately a couple of refereeing decisions went against us and we weren’t quite able to finish off moves and situations and the chances that we had. We will look to put that right on Saturday”
