Build from a strong defensive display

Phil Brown wants Blues to get back to basics against Scunthorpe on Friday night.

Phil Brown has called for his side to get back to the basics against Scunthorpe United on Friday.

Three clean sheets and three wins has been followed by three defeats and seven goals against.

Blues’ boss is now keen to shut out Scunthorpe on Friday night and build from there.

He said: “I think that goal for Chesterfield in the 96th minute took it out of my players.

“They’d gone from looking forward with a positive mentality to looking over their shoulder slightly.

“We played well in that game and against Wycombe but Morecambe was extremely disappointing.

“This Friday against Scunthorpe we need to try and get back to what we were doing before and that’s keeping clean sheets.

“If we can do that then we’re not going to lose the game. If we’re solid defensively we can then look to build from there.

“The performance is important on Friday night. Saturday’s wasn’t good enough but I’m sure the players will respond.”
