Ghanaian attacker Akwasi Asante has turned his attentions to beating fellow English fifth-tier side Notts County on Saturday.
Chesterfield lost 4-0 to West Brom in the FA Cup, a result that left a sour taste in Asante’s mouth.
But he now aims to beat the league leaders.
“It is massive,” he said. “We have got our full focus on the league now. The FA Cup is behind us now, we have had a decent run but realistically we were never going to win the cup but we have got a big opportunity on Saturday to close the gap on Notts County and the lads will be ready for it I am sure,” he told Derbyshire Times.
“The fans were brilliant, they always are. It is a lovely occasion for them, I feel like we let them down a bit [in our defeat against West Brom] but I am sure they will still be there to support us on Saturday.”
