Radoslaw Majewski wants to play his part in turning boos to cheers at Chesterfield.
The on-loan Nottingham Forest midfielder later learned the crowd were upset at seeing him taken off.
Now the 27-year-old Polish international is hoping caretaker boss Mark Lillis names him in his side for the Capital One Cup first-round clash.
“I thought the reaction from the fans was because of my performance,” he said.
“I didn’t want to be taken off as I thought I was playing quite well. But it was the manager’s decision and you accept it.
“We didn’t create enough chances, which is what I was there for, and he wanted to try something else.”
Majewski insists there’s a positive feel ahead of the Proact Stadium tie, which is followed by Championship trips to Cardiff and Reading.
“The season’s only one game old,” he added.
“We can’t dwell on Saturday too much because we’ve big games coming up.
“That’s the good thing. The matches are going to come thick and fast over the next few weeks.
“Hopefully we can give the fans something to cheer about.”
Lillis has called on the players to “put a shift in” against their League I hosts tonight.
“We all have to pull together and move on,” he said.
“This is an important game for the club, and a win could kick off a run.
“I know the fans will get behind the players if they put a shift in and we’ve challenged the players to do that.”
