Brewers defender anticipating a challenging game.

With Chesterfield being tipped to be strugglers this season after a change in management and a few of their players heading for the departure gate, they have had a better start to the season than some expected.

Their recent form hasn’t been great however. They have most recently been beaten by Coventry City thanks to a solo Adam Armstrong goal which was the difference between the two sides.

They haven’t picked up a win in three games now after throwing away two good leads against Wigan Athletic and Colchester United. Their poor form has convinced Phil Edwards that the Spireites are going to come directly at the Albion on Saturday.

“I think Chesterfield will come for us.

“They got beat at the weekend so they will be looking to bounce back.

“They will come at us but we just have to be resolute.

“We will work on the training pitch and see where we can get at them and try to capitalise on that and hopefully come away with a positive result.”

The Brewers have faced the Spireites a numerous amount of times over the past couple of seasons and most recently under the management of Paul Cook but they now have a new manager.

After Paul Cook departed the Proact to join League Two Portsmouth, Dean Saunders was his replacement.

“With their previous manager, we knew how he played.” Said Phil Edwards.

“They beat us at home when we were in league two a couple of years ago.

“They are under new management now.

“They will be roughly the same but they have added extra quality up front with Ebanks-Blake, you can’t give him too many chances.

“It will be a difficult game but we have to concentrate on ourselves really.”
