Irish playmaker Jay O'Shea believes Chesterfield have what it takes to make the play-offs.

The 23-year-old opened the scoring at Underhill with a magnificent solo effort, turning a defender an riffling an effort into the top corner.

Sam Togwell rounded off the win with an effort from close range to make a place in the top seven a real possibility.

Fellow promotion contenders Exeter City, Fleetwood Town and Rotherham United all suffered defeats which put the Spireites within one win of a play-off place.

Speaking after the game, O'Shea couldn't hide his delight with how the afternoon's results went.

He said: “It’s brilliant for us. I think if you’d have told us that after the Torquay game, I don’t think we would have believed you.

“The results are starting to go our way and we’re starting to pick up points so we’ve got a great chance of being in there at the end of the season.

“I think sometimes when you play away you have to admit that some of the home teams are just going to dominate the game.

“We grinded it out and then second half we came out and two nice bits of play and we took the win. It was nice.”

Bradford City are Chesterfield's next opponents. The Bantams currently sit just once place and one point above the Spireites and O'Shea is in no doubt about the importance of that game.

“This has got to be the biggest game of our season. I think every game that we come into now is going to be biggest game of our season so we have to take everything like a cup final," said the former MK Dons man.

“If we do that and win all of our games. We’ll be in the play-offs at the end of the season.”
