Spireites defender, Liam Cooper, believed Saturday's game against AFC Wimbledon was a great spectacle for both sets of supporters.Cooper, who has been integral in Chesterfield's five clean sheets from seven games, also praised the Dons' approach to the match. He said: “What a game to come down and watch, Wimbledon have shown us a lot of respect and we’ve shown them a lot of respect.
“They’ve not put men behind the ball like I think a lot of teams will this year. They’ve given us a good game today and luckily we’ve taken our chances.”
Chesterfield have conceded just three goals in League 2 this season, the second best record in the entire Football League, with QPR being the only team to have conceded less. The centre half believes a continuation of the current defensive form will put the club in a great position.
“From a defensive point of view, I think the back four and Tommy have got to keep doing what we’re doing and keep as many clean sheets as we can,” said Cooper before adding: “If we can put two goals away every week and keep keeping clean sheets, we’re going to put ourselves in good stead."
Speaking on the team's progress as a whole, the 21-year-old explained how the squad are approaching the season game-by-game. He said: “You want to win your home games and get what you can away from home. It’s in our hands now, we’ve managed to get the results together but we’ve just got to keep going.
“If we keep winning games then nobody’s going to catch us and that’s what we’ve got to do, we don’t have to worry about points we’ve just got to make sure we win games.”
