Chesterfield will be hoping to take the form they showed in their midweek win over Wycombe Wanderers into the weekend trip to Cheltenham Town.

Spireites beat their nearest rivals in the table 4-1 to move nine points clear of the Chairboys.

The performance prompted manager John Sheridan to say: “From the first minute we got at them and I thought we really played well, and that’s credit to the players who responded to how they played on Saturday.

“There were one or two who knew they had played poorly (against Morecambe) and admitted it, but they were really on top of their game against Wycombe, we were excellent against the team that were second in the league.

“Hopefully we can take the performance on to this weekend. As I always say, it’s about consistency and if you have it in this league you can get out of it.”

Sheridan selected a very attack minded side after centre back Ian Breckin reported an illness and he said: “I played a winger at right back, a right back and a left back at centre back but the back four played very well and we were always a threat going forward, with four different scorers.”

One man surprisingly in the side was Dean Morgan and the manager explained: “Morgan had only trained for four days after being out for eight weeks but you could see that quality he’s got in his game, hopefully he’ll get stronger as the weeks go on.”

Cheltenham beat Stockport County in midweek to register their first win in nine.
