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. He said: looking at some of the incidents on Saturday, the referee wasn't in an ideal position to award correct decisions on a number of occasions and I would have to question his fitness. i hope he as been working out since that game.
