Full back spoke exclusively to ahead of Spireites clash.

Defender Reece Wabara has said that Saturday’s enticing fixture against high-flying Chesterfield will be ‘vital’ to the club’s chances of moving up the Sky Bet League One table.

The 22 year old has played every minute of the Rovers’ league campaign thus far and is hopeful that Paul Dickov’s men have turned a corner.

“We haven’t scored in two home games and we need to start taking our chances because that will be the difference between getting in the top four and not,” he said.

“I think it's vital that we get three points and climb up the league but it's just as important that we don’t lose. We had a clean sheet in the last game which was brilliant for confidence as I think we defended well as a whole.”

Rovers’ winless run at home continued with the stalemate against Crawley Town on Tuesday night, though they did come close to snatching a winner late on.

“I think it would be a lie to say that we don’t feel the pressure a little bit but as a professional you have to banish the statistics,” countered Wabara.

“Every game in League 1 is difficult but Chesterfield are different to a team that parks the bus because there'll be more space and hopefully more chances.

“We need the mentality that we want to win every game. We got part of the way there on Tuesday and hope it continues on to Saturday and beyond.”
