Spireites Face Tough Game At Southend.

The two form teams in the League 2, do battle against each other. Southend are currently in sixth position. Paul Sturrock received Manager of the Month Award for November, although they have only won 1 of their last 4 League fixtures. It should be a good end to end battle with both teams playing attacking free flowing football. The Spireites will be trying to make it 6 games unbeaten, if Southend manage to avoid defeat they will have gone 12 League games unbeaten.

Vital Quotes:

Cook talking to the club website said: 'Southend are in good form, they're a very good strong club at League Two level, they've got play-off experience, they've got a lot of experienced players. It will be a tough game tomorrow night for us. It will also be very tough for Southend. Tomorrow night at Southend we'll go there to win the match. We'll go there to entertain our travelling support and to come back with 3 points. '
