HARRIERS head to Champions Chesterfield on Easter Monday with boss Phil Brown insisting his charges have to keep positive ahead of the season’s final four games.

A defeat to Altrincham on Good Friday left a flat feeling at Aggborough, but a determined Brown insists positivity must still prevail.

He explained: “Bottom line is that we’ve got to pick ourselves up from Friday’s performance and take the positives out of it, that’s the main thing.

“The first half had a lot of positives and if we can produce that for 90 minutes on Monday, then who knows?

“When we get three points, then who knows? You’re looking at the last three games more positively.

“That’s the main part, we have to say positive.”

Chesterfield have already secured this season’s National League title after a phenomenal season.

Paul Cook’s charges have swept away the division to deservedly secure their first-place finish with weeks to spare.

They fell to defeat at York City as they got back into action on Good Friday having lifted the silverware, and Brown is hoping that’s a sign that Harriers can take advantage.

He added: “I’m not saying they’re on the beach as you never want to goad anybody where that’s concerned.

“What they’ve done this season is second to none, even with the achievements of Wrexham and Notts County last season, it’s a brilliant performance and season.

“They’ve won it by a country mile.

“They can take their foot off the gas, as we’ve witnessed again [with their result on Saturday], they’ve lost a couple of games of late so maybe their focus has shifted to next season which will be in the second division.

“Maybe Paul Cook is looking at his squad and seeing who he can improve with.

“He has a big enough squad to choose two teams, two teams that could probably be in the top six.

“One’s proven to be Champions already and the second team, if that’s playing on Monday, then we might have a better chance.”

Kick-off on Easter Monday is at 3:00pm.

Away travel is sold out, but Harriers fans can still purchase match tickets from Chesterfield’s website.
