Attackers Working Hard

Manager Paul Cook has revealed that he, along with his forward players, are working hard in training on their attacking movement.

The Spireites have been seeing plenty of the ball in the final third in recent weeks, but have not been able to convert that into goals.

Speaking after the 1-1 draw at Rochdale, in which Jay O'Shea hit the bar and Marc Richards had a goal ruled out for offside and then was denied a last minute penalty, Cook admitted that his side have been working on turning that possession into goals.

"It's what we're working on, the movement and quality in the last third. We had good chances today, good positions and good movement. We got into great areas to cross the ball and when it clicks it will go well for us," said the Spireites boss.

"That doesn't bother me [hitting the woodwork]. Jay O'Shea has got that quality.

"The more we can get O'Shea and [Danny] Whitaker in the last third of the pitch, the better."

The Liverpudlian also reserved special praise for the travelling Spireites who made the trip to Spotland.

He said: "Our fans who travel, and again, great credit to them. They travelled in great numbers, got right behind the lads from the first minute to the 90th and they've seen that on a regular basis."
