Leam Richardson believes Chesterfield should take confidence from the way opposition teams are trying to frustrate them.
The Spireites assistant manager was speaking after his side’s goalless draw with Northampton on Tuesday night.
Aidy Boothroyd’s Cobblers set up to frustrate the hosts and successfully came away from the Proact Stadium with a point.
And Richardson said: “I’m starting to take confidence in managers, who have been around for a long time, are coming here and ditching their own beliefs.
“The easiest thing in football is to set up to be hard to beat and not concede goals. People do it in training Monday to Friday. We’ve got to overcome that.
“It’s up to us to be a bit brighter in the last third and ask a few more questions.”
