Spireites boss Paul Cook is pleased with the impact striker Armand Gnanduillet has had on the club.

The French-born striker has put in some good performances in the blue of Chesterfield since arriving in January.

Gnanduillet gave supporters a glimpse of what he is capable of with a sensational solo effort to wrap up the points against Bristol Rovers at the weekend.

Cook is delighted with the impact the big striker has had, but insists he still has much to learn.

He said: “It’s been a breath of fresh air since he’s come to the club. He’s become a fans favourite quite instantly; one thing for sure is that he affects a game.

“Certainly on Saturday he wasn’t playing well, it wasn’t happening for him in any shape or form. But to show the confidence to do what he done and to score the goal, that gives him more and more confidence because then the self-belief comes as a player that he’s good.

“We’ve seen signs in him since he came through the door at the club that there’s something to work with. That opinion doesn’t change. The disappointing side of it is that the amount of time on the training ground.

“I think if Armand can stay fit, the more time he spends at the club the more he’ll improve as a player.”
