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.
