PHIL PARKINSON is expecting another tricky test against Chesterfield tonight but the Wrexham boss is buoyed by his side's performance at the weekend.

The Reds produced arguably their best performance of the season as they built up a deserved 2-0 lead at Aldershot on Saturday before the game was abandoned because of a waterlogged pitch.

It was the response Parkinson was looking for following the 2-1 defeat at Stockport.

"I thought we were excellent," said Parkinson.

"The lads were hurting after last week's defeat so to play as well as we did in difficult conditions, I thought the lads were absolutely superb.

"I was immensely proud of the way we went about our business.

"It was a good example how to play away from home. We executed the game plan almost to the letter in the first 45-50 minutes."

On facing third placed Chesterfield, Parkinson added: "It will be a difficult one but they all are.

"We have just got to keep sticking together and do the right things in training.

"The response in training last week after the defeat was excellent and we move on to Chesterfield."
