PREVIEW | "We're looking positively with no room for error"

13 April 2017

Blues chief previews Chesterfield...

Blues boss Phil Brown admitted there is little room for error between now and the end of the season, but isn't looking any further than Chesterfield on Good Friday.

Blues travel to the Proact Stadium at the start of the Easter weekend, but Brown has fitness concerns surrounding five of his players.

In his pre-match press conference ahead of traveling to face the Spireites, Brown said: "We’ve got four or five major doubts in the side and obviously Ryan Leonard is still suspended.

"There is little room for error, but at the same time I’m looking for a massive effort from the squad that I’ve got.

"I’ve got doubts to Anton Ferdinand, Nile Ranger, John White, Adam Thompson, along with the suspension of Ryan Leonard.

"It’s going to be all hands to the pump I’m afraid, and certainly over the two games.

"Chesterfield will pose a problem, a threat to us, down to the fact that they play a little bit of football, but we have a plan of attack and a plan of action to go up there and give it our best shot to get the points that we’re looking for."

Chesterfield are fighting for their life in Sky Bet League One.

Brown believes it be a open encounter due to the need to win for both sides. 

"They're fighting for the survival in this division," he added. "A new manager has been put in place and he likes to play football, but so do we.

"That's the way we have to approach it.

"I know that if it is open, and we can get our best players out there, we'll be a match for anyone in this division, let alone who we are playing.

"It will be a tough game, there is no doubt about it but if I can wheel out my sick, my wounded, my injured then it will be a good game of football.

"We’re looking positively at the weekend with no room for error.

"If we can get the three points on Friday, Monday becomes a more important game but that’s the case all the way through the season.

"We won’t be taking our focus off the one game. Friday is the most important game of the season and it’s one game at a time."
