First Team Coach, Kevin Lynch, was delighted with the work rate and desire of the team to push for a late winner in Saturday's game against Southend United.
The Liverpudlian heaped praise on the players for their commitment right up until the final whistle. He said: “It took great character from the players to show the level of desire that they did because some teams would have settled for the point, but not us. We kept pushing for the win and I'm delighted that we got it.”
Lynch was thrilled with the contribution of Armand Gnanduillet, who came off the bench to score a late winner for the Spireites. He said: “It's a great header from Armand and i'm really pleased for him because he hasn't had the minutes on the pitch so far this season and he has been very patient.
“He's got a real presence about him, he just needs to maybe believe in himself a little bit more, but to show the positivity that he did today was great,” explained Lynch.
The former Marine manager commended Southend, who played their part in an entertaining encounter. “Credit has to be given where it's due and I think that Southend are a good side and that no team is going to have it easy against them.
"I think that the lads showed a lot of patience, because you can sometimes become frustrated in a game like that and that can lead to sloppyness, but I thought we kept our composure well, we kept going until the end and we have got our rewards,” said Lynch.
The First Team Coach confirmed that there are no fresh injury concerns ahead of next week's trip to Portsmouth, he said: “There are no reported injuries, there are a few knocks and niggles but there is nothing major, which is a credit to the players' fitness. I think that they are in tip top shape and we are looking forawrd now for next Saturday and the challenge that Portsmouth will pose.”
