CHESTERFIELD travel to sixth placed Cheltenham Town tonight with nothing other than a win in their sights.

In five previous visits to Whaddon Road, no Chesterfield team has conceded a goal.

Paul Cook’s side’s defence is in fine fettle now; they have conceded just two goals in the last five games and have two consecutive clean sheets behind them.

The Robins are eleven points ahead of Spireites in a very clustered play-off zone.

Just two points separate third to seventh spot, something that makes Chesterfield midfielder Sam Togwell hopeful that his team’s season is far from over.

The man who made his 300th league appearance in the weekend win at Dagenham & Redbridge said: “Teams are fighting for their lives.

“It’s no different for us, we are still fighting for a place in the play-offs which is where we think we should be.

“Every game from now on is going to be a battle. At Dagenham, we stood up to the test.

“That bit of luck that we haven’t had for the past few weeks finally came our way. We haven’t scored as many goals as we would have liked, but we’re not conceding many either.

“Two games now unbeaten and we want to go on a run. We have got to make sure we recover to go down to Cheltenham and pick three points up.”

Cook could replace Armand Gnanduillet with Jack Lester.

The former has trained for just one day in the last two weeks and played the full 90 minutes at the weekend whilst 37 year old Lester has recovered from the virus that prevented him travelling to Greater London.

There are not expected to be any other changes in the side after no injuries were reported.

Sixth -placed Cheltenham - one place ahead of Rotherham United - beat bottom club AFC Wimbledon 2-1 on Saturday, meaning they have lost just once in their last 11 games.
