Lynch Hails Training Ground Drills

First team coach Kevin Lynch was pleased to see the hard work being put in on the training ground paying off on a Saturday afternoon.

Ollie Banks and Armand Gnanduillet headed both goals in Chesterfield's 2-0 win over Wycombe in the first half and the coach was delighted to see moves from the training ground being displayed on the pitch.

He said: “We’ve worked on a few things in terms of the movement and the crosses into the box. It’s so pleasing when they come off and it was one of those games that needed a goal to liven it up, so it was pleasing that it went our way.

“It’s always a good time to score before half time. They changed the way they played in the second half and they did well without really troubling us much. 

"I thought it was a professional performance from the lads like we did last week at Torquay. We saw the game out and that’s what you need to do at this level and I felt it was a great team effort today.”

Tommy Lee captained the side and kept a clean sheet on his 200th appearance for the Spireites and Lynch couldn’t praise the goalkeeper enough for his outstanding contribution to the football club.

The Liverpudlian said: “Tommy is a true professional in terms of the work rate that he puts in on the training ground and how he conducts himself on and off the pitch. I’m so pleased for him that he’s been given the honour to captain the side. To keep a clean sheet at the same time was good and we think he’ll treasure that moment for a long time to come.” 

Ollie Banks scored another goal to take his tally to four goals in three games in all competitions and the former Marine manager explained the decision to take the youngster off.

“It was a precaution to take the midfielder off. He was suffering with a dead leg and it’s not too serious,” explained the coach. “We’re in tomorrow so we’ll assess the situation with him and hopefully he will be alright for Tuesday.”
