NOW GO ON AND MOUNT A REAL BID
EVEN Paul Cook admits the narrative of the Chesterfield season has been set – anything less than promotion will be seen as failure.
No matter how many pounds you spend in the transfer market or how many drills you run in preseason training there is no telling how the playerss react when the pressure comes.
Against Cheltenham they scored twice when it mattered most, settling the nerves before killing off the Robins right at the death.
In truth Cheltenham deserved more with Byron Harrison a constant threat and Jermaine McGlashan adamant he deserved a penalty with 11 minutes to go.
Still few teams have achieved success without a little help and Cook would certainly prefer to be a lucky general than a good one if it guaranteed promotion.
They will face tougher tests than this along the way and need to pick themselves up from their fare share of defeats.
