Spireites goalkeeper Tommy Lee admitted Chesterfield weren't at their best against Exeter on Friday but hailed the team's determination to earn a draw.

Speaking to Spireites Player after the game, Lee said: “I don’t think we started, they got quite a lucky goal with a deflection off Tendayi and then the way they set up to play favoured them. 

“We huffed and puffed a little but credit to the lads we got the penalty and Doyle slotted it away nicely. Then it’s a lottery, we got a little bit gung-ho but we want to win, I think you could see that at the end with the determination from the lads.”

The Chesterfield stopper made a number of crucial saves throughout the afternoon to help the Spireites battle for a point but Lee maintains that he was simply doing his job.

He explained: “That’s what I’m there to do and if I can help the team by doing that then I’m more than willing.

“It’s always nice to make saves. Evo and Coops have been fantastic in front of me, I’ve not had to make as many as I have done in previous seasons."

With three games of the 2013/14 season remaining, Chesterfield travel to Dagenham & Redbridge on Monday and Lee knows that the 11th place Daggers will be a difficult challenge.

“It will be a difficult game because they were a good side when we played them earlier on in the season," said the 28-year-old before adding: "They’ve got nothing to play for which could go either way.

“We’ll need to be professional, we’ll be in on Saturday to regroup, we’ll train on Sunday and we’ll be ready to go on Monday mark my words.

“We know we’re a good side and we’ve always bounced back from little knocks here and there, we’ve done it all season.”
