Under-fire Chesterfield manager Lee Richardson has vowed to win his critics over after once again being the victim of the home fans' ire during the 1-1 draw with Chester City.
The result extended the Spireites' winless run to five matches and left last season's promotion challengers in the bottom half of the League Two table.
Richardson accepts his side are going through a difficult time, saying: "We seem to have slipped into a pattern at home of conceding an early goal and the supporters understandably start to vent their frustrations.
"The crowd's reaction isn't affecting me though. It's been here since day one for me and I knew we had to do extra well to quell that.
"I have no complaints with the crowd because we have this pattern of conceding in the first 15 minutes.
"What I do know is that it does affect the players, but they're getting used to it and we need a win to change that around and go on an unbeaten run."
