Drew Talbot wants to put smiles back on the faces of Town fans today at the Proact.

The Spireites are out to bounce back from Friday’s bitterly disappointing defeat at fellow strugglers Port Vale, when Newport County visit this afternoon.

Speaking after that 2-1 loss at Vale Park, Talbot admitted today’s clash was of huge importance.

“It’s a big game, they’re all big games anyway,” he said.

“On Monday we go again.

“They’ve had a bit of an up and down season, I’ve seen them a few times on TV when they played Tottenham and gave them a bit of a scare.

“Every game is going to be a tough game.

“After this we’ve got to play teams in and around us who are fighting for their lives.”

Talbot says the only remedy to the woe felt by everyone around the club following the Vale calamity, when Town lost to a side who had 10 men for 45 minutes, is to work hard.

“It’s up to us to knucle down and get ourselves out of the mess we’re in.

“It’s work time.

“Hopefully we can put a smile back on supporters’ faces.”
