Spireites assistant boss says league leaders Wrexham can expect a 'tough game' this weekend

Chesterfield's assistant manager was full of praise for his players going into a tough away game at league leaders Wrexham this weekend.

The spireites have won four out of six league games since John Sheridan returned for his second stint with the club, which has helped steer them away from the relegation places.

Sheridan's assistant, Glynn Snodin says he can't fault the players' work rate, but wants to see them improve in possession : "Overall if we can keep the ball better they'll save running as a team about two miles per game, because they're doing too much running when they don't have to.

"They're running 70 or 80 yards back when if they keep the ball better they might only be running 10 yards as a team."

Snodin also says he likes to help Sheridan as much as possible with his selection headaches: "I'll give him headaches as well with my opinion, I'm not a 'yes man'. If I think he's right I'll tell him but if there's something that I think needs saying then I'll tell him. 

"At the end of the day it's down to the gaffer what he wants to do but it's a nice headache to have."

Speaking about this weekend's match at Wrexham, who currently sit top of the National League, Snodin said: "They're doing something right because they're top of the table and you give them that respect.

But it's 11 v 11 and if we keep doing what we're doing, we'll give them a game.

"They'll find it's going to be a tough game for them."
