Yeovil Town boss Gary Johnson believes Saturday’s match with Chesterfield could play a pivotal part in both club’s seasons.

Johnson’s Glovers travel to the Proact Stadium on the back of consecutive defeats and one point from the last available 18 in League One.

He said: “The next win for both us and Chesterfield is massive, it’s vital for the next month or so because it’s wins that give you that confidence.

“They (Chesterfield) have certainly got a game that most teams are trying to play, in a shape and specific tactic, and you’ve got to make sure you don’t go somewhere and not perform.

“Every team in this league is capable of beating you if you’re not performing, but if you are performing, as we have shown when we have performed, any team can beat any other on their day.”

The point came in a 1-1 draw at home to Swindon Town, who showed their menace at the Proact on Tuesday night against the Spireites.

“A lot of teams are getting beaten by Swindon,” said Johnson. “We had to play very well against them to make sure their quality didn’t come through, it’s obviously come through against Chesterfield.

“That’s been part of their losing run, they’re going to be looking for a win. I suppose they’ll look at us and our form and see us as a possible three points. We’ve got to see it the other way.

“All me and Paul Cook can do is prepare our team as best as we can, get them out there and see who does the business.”
