Time to look forward to next weekend. I was delighted to have gone to the league fixture at the start of the season and to see how well we can play, even if, in the end, a result was snatched from us. To all those going up have a great time and have a pint in the Derby Tup for me! (What was the name of that light Sheffield bitter???)
Really difficult one to call but isn't that the truth for the majority of matches this season? Chesterfield had a dodgy period in October when they suffered home defeats by neighbours Mansfield and Burton but they haven't lost at home since and they seem to be buoyed up a bit, following their Cup victory against Daventry Town. those that wish to draw comfort and hope from their defeat at Newport on Sunday, should read the following.

Newport County manager Justin Edinburgh told BBC Radio Wales: "I think today was our biggest test, we came up against the best team I think I've seen in this League and it's a fantastic win.
"We're normally used to putting teams to the sword here but credit to Chesterfield they came out in that second half and they pinned us back, they got the goal and at that time they looked like they were the team who were going to go on and win it.

Whatevever happens on Saturday, I want a result...........hopefully a good one. It's going to be a very tough game and honestly, with our squad situation, I don't relish a replay that I fear we are no likelier to win. Personally, with our injury and suspension problems at the moment (Leonard, Eastwood & Woodrow), I fear that this is going to be too big an ask..
........sadly, a narrow defeat
