Spireites defender Liam Cooper revealed how the squad were disappointed to lose Saturday's game in the 88th minute after the centre back had put Chesterfield in front early in the second half.

In a post match interview with Spireites Player, Cooper explained how he felt Chesterfield should have seen the game though until the end. “We set up to win every game and we should have won that game today so it feels like a bit of a defeat in the dressing room," said the 22 year old.

He added: “The lads are obviously down. We’ve managed to get one-nil up and we’d have liked to have seen it out but that's football and in the end I don’t think it’s a bad point. I think a lot of teams will come here this year and struggle so we’ll take it as a good point."

After scoring ten minutes into the second period, the Spireites had a number of opportunities to double their lead; Sam Hird, Eoin Doyle and Chris Porter all went close to adding a second for Chesterfield. 

“We’ve had chances to finish off the game but if you don’t put those chances away then they go in at the other end. We’ve been unlucky today but it’s a good point in the end," explained Cooper. 

With Ritchie Humphreys pushed forward into midfield and Nathan Smith out injured, the former Hull City defender filled in at left back on Saturday and having adapted well, he said: “I’m getting used to it now so hopefully I’ll be back to centre half soon but I don’t mind, as long as I’m playing I’ll play anywhere.”
