Swindon Town Assistant Manager Ben Futcher is expecting a tough test from Chesterfield today, but has backed his side to produce the goods.

The Reds will be looking to make it two wins on the bounce at the Proact Stadium later (3pm Kick-Off), but they will be coming up against a Spireites side who are scrapping for their lives.

However, Futcher has insisted that his team will be set-up to go out and win, and he also went on to p

"They are a big threat," he said.

"They came down with Swindon last season, they've found it really difficult to adapt, as have Port Vale, and I think it just shows how well we've done at Swindon to get to where we are now.

"I'm sure Chesterfield was in a strong position when they came down, their manager had been in place for six months or so but they find themselves in the bottom two.

"It shows what a tough division it is, how difficult it is to regroup when you do get relegated and we told the lads that it shows what a positive job they've done to lift that cloud from Swindon and get us towards the top end of the table.

"Chesterfield have got some good players in this division, they've got a big squad, they signed eleven players in January and they will be expected to get out of it.

"It will be a really tough game for us.

"We're looking forward to it, it is another game we're looking to win and we will set-up to get three points.

"We're under no illusions that it is going to be a really tough game but we'll be going there knowing what their threats are, but also what their weaknesses are and how we can exploit them."
