SHEFFIELD United winger Ryan Flynn is determined to heap more misery on struggling Chesterfield in their lunchtime showdown this weekend.

The Spireites are bottom of the table and are four points adrift of safety having gone two months without a victory in League One.

The pressure is on Chesterfield manager John Sheridan to turn their slump in fortunes around following a 5-2 reversal at Oldham Athletic last weekend.

But Flynn, who is pushing for a start after two lively cameos as a substitute, says United will not take the Spireites for granted at the B2Net Stadium, kick-off 1pm.

He said: “We have to do the basics right and focus on our game. We will have to match them for the simple things like work rate and ethic.

“I would imagine it will be a bit of a battle and a lot of our away games have been like that this season. We have had some tough away games and this will be no different. We can’t worry about Chesterfield.

“We have to concentrate on our performance and make sure we do the basics right. If we do that, I’m sure we will be okay.”

Flynn, who won the penalty which Richard Cresswell missed against Carlisle United, has claimed losing to Bradford City in the latter stages of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy (JPT) could prove to be a turning point in their season.

United crashed out of the competition on penalties at Bramall Lane in the quarter finals of the northern section.

The Scot said: “Maybe we have turned the corner since being knocked out of the JPT. We have won the last two matches and we just want to keep that momentum going.

“We want to keep winning up to Christmas because it is going to be hectic and hopefully that will help us through it.”
