Manager Taking The Positives

23 August 2012

Spireites boss John Sheridan is taking the positives from Chesterfield's start to life in League Two.

Sheridan's men have put in some impressive performances but only have one point to show for it.

In the previous two games, against AFC Wimbledon and Rochdale, Chesterfield have created a number of goal-scoring chances and have been punished for not taking them. But the manager is taking the positives.

He said: "I’m obviously not pleased with the results from the opening two league games but I honestly do believe that we could have won both games. We started both games really well and I’m pleased with how we’re performing attacking-wise.

"I’ve looked at the stats and we had a total of 29 attempts at goal in the two games, of which 22 were on target. If we carry on with that sort of average, I think we’re due to score one or two goals and hopefully win one or two games.

"I’ve got to look at things in a positive way but I still think we can do things a lot better. Defensively, we need get in and around the ball a little bit more."

Sheridan was keen to point out though that although his side are creating opportunities, they need to start turning performances into results.

"Winning matches and getting points on the board is what we all look at", Sheridan said speaking at his pre-match press conference.

"I’d rather have had two bad performances and a lot more points. But if we keep creating chances, I’m sure we’ll get our rewards.

"Even though we've only picked up one point, I’ve got to stick to what I think we’re doing well at and that’s what we’ll do."
