ASSISTANT boss Tommy Wright has tipped Chesterfield to come back stronger after conceding that relegation will happen.
The Spireites altered their shape against Wycombe on Easter Monday and won 4-0 at the B2net Stadium.
The result delayed the all but inevitable drop and Wright added: “You can’t hide the fact that we’ll be relegated but after winning two trophies in two years the manager deserves the chance to put things right. I feel we’ll really be a force next season.
“We have to finish the season strongly and get a positive feel around the place again. There’ll be lots of changes but we’ll come back stronger.”
At the core of Monday’s success was central midfield duo of Franck Moussa and Mark Randall playing just in front of Jimmy Juan with Jordan Bowery the lone striker.
No 2 Wright said: “We’ve wanted to play a midfield three for a while but, with Jimmy’s injuries, that’s not been possible. The combination worked well.”
Wright indicated that leading scorer Craig Westcarr, who’d picked up a slight groin strain at Walsall, came off at half-time in the Wycombe game as a result of a new hamstring injury. He’s now a doubt for the weekend trip to Hartlepool United.
