'Our toughest test yet' - James Rowe expects 'tasty' fixture as Chesterfield face in-form Yeovil Town
Two of the National League’s form teams go head-to-head at the Technique Stadium on Saturday as Chesterfield host Yeovil Town.
The Glovers are top of the six-game form guide with five wins, including three on the bounce, a run which has taken them to 10th and just three points off the play-offs.
But the Spireites are in great form themselves and have actually achieved a better sequence of run than Yeovil over 10 matches, with James Rowe’s men picking up 20 points, two more than Saturday’s opponents.
Town, who will still be without Joe Rowley for at least another week, face their ‘toughest test yet’, believes Rowe.
“They are having a similar trajectory to us,” Rowe said.
“Their manager has some experience in the Football League and it is his second year in the National League.
“We won’t be taking them lightly, we never do.
“I think it will be our toughest test yet with the form of the opposition. They are in the hunt for the play-offs now as well so it is a tasty fixture.”
“I think both teams have got individuals who can change a game on its head at any moment and they have got a good structure going from what I have seen so far.
A win for Chesterfield would take them above Yeovil and potentially on the cusp of the top seven.
Apart from Rowley, Rowe has almost a full squad to choose from, with Tom Denton the only long-term absentee.
“It is going to be a good game and one I am very looking to,” he added.
