Chesterfield v AFC Fylde. Martin Allen shouts some instuctions to his players in the second half.

The Town manager, as he does every week, expects a difficult game when his side travel to the Shay for a 5.15pm kick-off.

But his focus is more on what the Spireites can do than what the Shaymen might do.

“They had a very good start but haven’t been doing so well recently.

“He (Jamie Fullarton) is a good young manager.

“Every game is a difficult game.

“Our full concentration is on our performance and our way, moving our team.”

Chesterfield haven’t won for 12 games, but are unbeaten in two thanks to draws at Maidstone and at home to AFC Fylde.

“We are improving, we are getting better,” said Allen.

“The players are giving everything they’ve got.

“I think it’s starting to shape up how I really, really want it.”
