Whilst all of the attention at the Proact Stadium this afternoon will be on Jack Lester’s swansong, there is a match to be navigated.
The game with Exeter may be a ‘dead rubber’ between two teams just out of the play-off mix but Spireites boss Paul Cook is clear on his objective with his side currently occupying their highest position of the season, eighth.
“We’ll treat the game with respect,” he said. “It’s obvious the highest position we can reach is eighth which, I think, is probably the worst place to finish.
“But that’s where we’re at, we can’t do anything about that now but we owe it to everybody to do it right and finish the season on a high but there really should be something on the game for a club like ours.”
He added: “I just want to win the game, we need to get into the habit of winning but after the game the club’s full attention will turn to the retained list, who’ll come and who’ll go.
“You can dress the season up all you want but it’s fallen short of what we expect.”
Big striker Armand Gnanduillet has signed a two year contract.
