Five points from Warren Feeney's Chesterfield press

The key talking points from the Assistant Coach's pre-Chesterfield media duties

16 October 2017

We've picked out the key points from Warren Feeney's chat with iFollow Crawley on Monday afternoon ahead of the game with Chesterfield...

No easy feat...

"It won't be an easy game because they've got a new manager in Jack Lester who was a great player and has been a very good coach as well," said the Assistant Coach.

"The results haven't been what they would have wanted but we've watched them and there's lot of good things that they're starting to do now and so it'll be a difficult game."

What about us...

"We're coming into the game off the back of two good results away from home though and we have to take great confidence in that.

"We felt that we could have even won the game at Grimsby on Saturday too and that shows how far we've come over the last few months away from home but it was another fantastic result for us on the road."

Results that matter...

"Every team wants to play good and attractive football but sometimes you do have to dig deep and get a result when you're not necessarily at your best.

"Against Morecambe even though they were down to ten men I thought they still played very well - and sometimes when teams have a man less it can make it harder as well.

"Two clean sheets out of the last two away games obviously gives us a lot of confidence so now it's about the boys putting the ball in the back of the net.

Tables in October? Best not to look...

"I don't think you can read too much into any league standing at this stage because it's still relatively early into the season," he continued.

"The manager at Chesterfield will still be implementing his plans for the side and that does take time wherever you go.

"The players will ve looking to impress him so we have to look after ourselves and make sure we're good at what we do."

Feels like home...

"We know the home form needs to improve and back-to-back games here present us with a chance to do that.

"I'd ask the fans to really get behind the boys, I said it when I was in charge of Newport County and players nowadays hear everything.

"If they can back the side then it does make a difference and that's what I'd ask them to do from the off because we all want what's best for the football club."
