The Gaffer - Dave Rushbury
How has your start to the season been?
A lot better than we could have expected. Sitting just outside the play-offs when most people expected us to be bottom half, myself included. Not been the most exciting football at times, but we have picked up some great results along the way.

How have you been playing over the past few games?
Not as well as we were in September. Two bad results on the spin away from from home to Bristol and Colchester, although we still have been managing to win our home games.

Are you happy with your start to the season?
Yes, cant ask for much more, a win on Saturday could shoot us back in the top 6.

Are you happy with your manager?
Reasonably, brought in some good young players for almost no budget, only criticism is tactics away from home, where we have been struggling in recent weeks.

Chesterfield Celebrate Sealing 3 Points Against Mansfield, Their Best Result So Far This Season!
Best result this season so far?
2-0 win at Mansfield. Brilliant to get yet another one over our local rivals (and yours of course!)

Worst result so far this season?
4-2 thrashing at home to a poor Swindon side. Improved since thank god!

Best player so far this season?
Chris Brandon! That guy is red hot! Snapped up on a free, and has produced some great displays, and some great goals.

Chris Brandon - Best Player So Far
Who should Notts' fans watch out for in the Chesterfield side?

Chris Brandon, Jamie Burt (if he has a good game), and our young defender Dawson, looks bright star for future.

How do you rate Notts County?
Have some good players on your books, but don't seem to be able to get the results. Could do better probably.

Who do you fear most in Notts' squad?
Allsopp, decent striker, hopefully be marked out of game on Saturday.

Score prediction?
