Sam Togwell insists Chesterfield don’t fear anyone in League Two following Saturday’s defeat of Plymouth Argyle.
The midfielder has found it difficult to hold down a regular place in the Spireites starting line up this season.
But began against John Sheridan’s Pilgrims at the Proact Stadium for only his second start of what has so far been a frustrating campaign for the 29-year-old.
His chance came about due to the plethora of injuries which has stretched Chesterfield’s squad over the past week.
Togwell said: “It has been frustrating but the lads have been doing well. In the first ten or 12 games we were top of the league and I couldn’t really say anything to get back in the team.
“But results have been indifferent over the last few weeks and I’ve had to bide my time, keep myself fit doing extra work and it was my chance so I took it.”
Paul Cook’s troops make the 470-mile round trip to Exeter for a Friday night game against Paul Tisdale’s Grecians, who ended a seven match winless run with a 3-2 win over Accrington Stanley last weekend.
“We respect everyone in the league but we don’t fear anyone,” added the former Scunthorpe United man.
“It’ll be a tough game. That’s why we have a squad of players, not just eleven players. You have to rely on the squad and we think we’ve got one of the best squad’s in the league.”
