Boss looks to Chesterfield

24 March 2014

Jim expecting tough trip

SHRIMPS' boss Jim Bentley says his side will be looking to take advantage of their excellent record against Chesterfield when they travel to the Proact Stadium on Tuesday night.
Bentley said: "We have done well against Chesterfield over the years but every game is different.
"I am sure they will be looking to get revenge for their defeat at the Globe Arena earlier in the season when we beat them 4-3 after being 3-0 down in a superb game.
"It was one of the best matches I have ever been involved in to be honest. They were that good in the first half that I was glad we were only 3-0 down at half time as it could have been more. But once we got a goal against them the game changed and we scored four and could have had more ourselves.
"I tipped them to get promoted before the start of the season and I am convinced they will still do that because they are a team full of quality which we saw in the first half against us.
"It's a tough place to go and will be a tough match but we will take the positives from the game against Northampton and take them into the match.
"We are missing Jamie Devitt as he can't play against his parent club which is unfortunate as he has been excellent since he came here but somebody else will get a chance and it is up to them to show us what they can do.''.
