Vital Quotes:

Mark Mcghee told bbc Radio: They're a young bunch of players and they are resilient. 'There's no reason why we can't shrug off what happened on Tuesday. We can go out refreshed and find a new rationality of why we should go out and beat Chesterfield.'

Cook speaking to the media said: 'Going there as a player and as a manager, it's a very difficult place to play football. The crowd are very hostile, they get behind the team and to come away with anything on Saturday we must perform.'

Richard Clark a first year ref is in charge of the game. He as had some criticism from manager Micky Adams, when talking to the media after his team lost to Northampton.
