NEWLY-APPOINTED Chesterfield boss Paul Cook is looking for more creativity from his side when they entertain Hartlepool United in his second match in charge in the FA Cup.

“You must be inventive in wide areas, get the ball wide quick and you must put quality in the box and it’s something we never did against Barnet,” he said. “We’ll analyse the game and take away from it what we need to work on.”

He added: “It’s not going to get better in a day or two; there’s a process in getting better. But what I will say to supporters is stick behind us. Stick behind the team we select and the progress that we try and make. That’s all I ask.”

Chesterfield have now lost their last three home games and only drew the fixture before that.

“There is no feeling in football like winning,” said Cook. “We have to have a mentality at this club that second best is not good enough.”

Former Spireites fans favourite Sean Dyche is set to be unveiled as Burnley’s new boss today. The Clarets currently lie 14th in the Championship with 17 points.
