Saturday’s visit of bottom side Leyton Orient to the Proact Stadium gives Chesterfield the perfect chance to put Tuesday night’s disappointment to bed.

That’s the message from Sam Morsy after defeat to Preston North End on their own patch saw the Spireites slip out of the top six in League One on goal difference.

Both Oldham Athletic and Sheffield United recorded victories on the night that saw them leapfog Chesterfield and Bradford City in to fifth and sixth respectively.

Orient, however, lost at home to Notts County, who Chesterfield overcame 1-0 last Saturday (February 7), and sit six points from safety ahead of the weekend.

Morsy said: “We’re itching to go again. We know we can’t win every game but when we do have a hiccup it’s about bouncing back and getting a win.”

Byron Harrison and Caolan Lavery both made their full home debuts against Preston with Mark Duffy coming off the bench for his first appearance in a blue shirt.

“We look really strong and the guys who have come in look really impressive from what I’ve seen of them,” added Morsy. “The guys look really hungry and a great addition to the squad.”
