Lee Calls for Turnaround

Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee was disappointed with Saturday's result against Bristol Rovers and claimed there needs to be a turnaround in form.

Speaking to Spireites Player after the game, Lee said: “We’re disappointed because they’re the games we need to win. With the quality we’ve got going forward, we should be putting teams to bed.

“It’s down to us now, we need to look at ourselves because it’s not been good enough over the last three or four games and we need to change it round quickly.”

The Spireites stopper praised the work of the coaching staff to prepare the team for matches. “We’re a positive lot and the gaffer wouldn’t have it any other way so we always feel like we’re going to win every game which is testament to the work the staff do throughout the week and the confidence they instil in us," said the 27-year-old.

He added: “Every now and then I think we’ve got to repay the faith that they’ve shown in us like we did over the first 12 games of the season. I think we need to start turning these draws and losses into wins.”

Lee kept his seventh clean sheet of the season and was pleased to keep Rovers out for the full 90 minutes. The 'keeper said: “It’s been three or four games since we last kept one in the league so it’s always nice to get the clean sheet.

“I think we defended really well, they didn’t really get any chances and that’s credit to Liam Cooper, Ian Evatt and Sam Hird after he came on.”

Just after the hour mark Eoin Doyle appeared to be fouled by Gas goalkeeper Steve Mildenhall and Lee was convinced that the challenge warranted a penalty.

He said: “I’m at the other end but it looked like a penalty to me. I think the whole ground thought it was a penalty apart from the ref and the linesman.

“That’s the way it goes, we were getting those decisions at the start of the season but we’ll press on and keep going.”
