New Chesterfield boss Paul Cook has pleaded with fans to keep faith with the club.

The Spireites handed npower League Two strugglers Barnet their first away win of the season on Saturday in Cook's first game since taking charge and have now lost their last three home matches.

The former Accrington manager has warned fans that there is no quick fix to Chesterfield's problems but he has targeted an improvement when they host Hartlepool in the FA Cup on Saturday.

"You must be inventive in wide areas, get the ball wide quick and you must put quality in the box and it's something we never did against Barnet," said Cook. "We'll analyse the game and take away from it what we need to work on.

"It's not going to get better in a day or two - there's a process in getting better. But what I will say to supporters is stick behind us. Stick behind the team we select and the progress that we try and make. That's all I ask.

"We have to have a mentality at this club that second best is not good enough."
