Milton: No complacency against Spireites

Assistant Manager Russell Milton has warned the Robins against any complacency when they face Chesterfield at the LCI Rail Stadium on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).

Cheltenham blazed to a stunning 3-0 derby day win over Swindon Town last weekend in Sky Bet League Two and Milton admits the camp has been ‘positive and bubbly’ all week as a result.

However, he admitted that result will count for nothing come kick-off on Saturday as the Robins face a team fired up to try and climb away from the relegation places.

“To go to Swindon and win 3-0 is a fabulous result and you can't fluke a 3-0 result. It was a great performance all-round and obviously we'd like to continue like that,” said Milton.

“Yes, you are aware of any complacency and we know that Chesterfield, on their day, are a good side.

“All teams are capable in this league and you still have to turn up, do your jobs and be professional and that's what we'll be reiterating.

“We will be telling them to go out, enjoy the game, express themselves and hopefully it'll be more of the same.

They are in the same league, they are just unfortunate where they are,” he added.

“They won't come and sit back and try and nick a draw, they need three points.

“But we do too as we want to get ourselves away from it totally now and give a good account of ourselves.

“We have to keep things ticking over, do our best, concentrate on ourselves and doing what we've done in the last three games, which will hopefully be enough to get us over the line and get us to where we want to be.”
