Tommy Lee made his comeback from injury against Oxford United at the weekend and has tasted victory in his first two games back in the Chesterfield net.

The Spireites stopper has been missing since injuring his shoulder in the 2-1 win over Oldham Athletic back in September but now appears to be over his injury woes.

Lee had nothing but praise for his teammates following the 4-1 win over Cheltenham, the keeper was guarded by a solid defence for the majority of the game which kept the opposition's chances at a premium.

Speaking to Spireites Player after the game, Tommy said: "The lads were brilliant, Coops [Liam Cooper] and Hirdy [Sam Hird] winning headers and that's all you can ask for. They [Cheltenham] whipped some dangerous balls in and I thought for a large part, we defended well.

"That's what the gaffer is trying to instill in us, you've got to do your job for ninety minutes not just when it suits. I think we showed tonight that when we do our jobs and we listen and we do things right, we're a good team.

"There was patches tonight where it reminded me of a couple of seasons ago, fast-flowing football, goals coming from anywhere, balls going in the box, it was good to watch tonight."

The 26-year-old spoke positively about the training regime under new manager Paul Cook, insisting that the lad were prepared to work in order to get success.

"We're doing more sessions, we're in in the afternoon's and things like that which is good," Lee told Spireites Player.

"At the end of the day we all want to win and if training extra sessions and things like that is going to make us win then we're all in for that."
