After Chesterfield's third clean sheet from their opening five games against Portsmouth on Saturday, Tommy Lee praised the Spireites defenders for their performance.

Chesterfield currently sit top of the League Two table with the best goal difference and the least amount of goals conceded, a record that Lee believes the team should be proud of.

Speaking to Spireites Player after the Portsmouth game, the goalkeeper said: “The lads defended well when we needed to in the second half and it’s always nice to keep clean sheets especially away from home.

“Confidence is high but that can change in football in a second so we’ve just got to keep doing what we’re doing. Keep training hard, keep our fitness up and hopefully we’ll be where we want to be come the end of the season.”

The former Manchester United 'keeper acknowledged the threat of Pompey and was happy Chesterfield could keep them at bay. He said: “We had to take chances in that second half to create chances, I was always going to be called upon once or twice. I’m just pleased I could do my job.”

In the later stages of Saturday's game, Pompey defender, Sonny Bradley drove at the Spireites goal and forced a succession of strong saves from Lee to keep the game level. 

Speaking about the saves, Lee said: “It was a great run. With him being a defender I was half expecting him to put his foot through it, which he did and I just managed to get a hand to it and then I blocked the second.”
