Spireites Look To Bounce Back Against York.

The Spireites will be looking to bounce back from their 3-0 defeat at Southend. They nearly won at York, but a last gasp equaliser by the home team in time added on cost them. Although the Spireites are a much improved team since that performance. York who failed to win a single match in November, have won two of their last 3 games, winning 3-2 at Rochdale and 4-1 in their last game at home to Bristol Rovers. Although the Spireites could be without Marc Richards they should be too strong for York City, they are no longer a one man team, they will attack as a team and defend as a team. They have plenty of players in the team capable of scoring.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Cook speaking to club website said: 'We've had a great level of performance so far, It's been fantastic, it's been a great journey so far. We've had some great wins but Friday night (against Southend) was totally unacceptable. York have had a fantastic season so far, coming up from the conference. They've had some really good victories and are in a very healthy League position. We respect York greatly but the emphasis must be on us. If we prepare well and we play well you've seen what we can do. If we prepare well and don't turn up we've also seen what can happen. So it's important we concentrate on ourselves and get get ourselves focused and in the right frame of mind to play a football match. '
