Doyle Back on the Scoresheet.

Spireites striker Eoin Doyle netted on Tuesday night for the first time since Chesterfield's 4-3 defeat at Morecambe in October and was relieved to get back on the scoresheet.

Less than two minutes into the Spireites' visit to York City, David McGurk failed to clear a Gary Roberts through-ball leaving Doyle to pounce on the pass and fire home. 

Speaking to Spireites Player after the game, he said: “I remember getting slipped through and I think the centre half’s made a mistake. I just took a gamble on him and hit it early, thankfully it went into the corner.

“It’s been a long while. It was nice to get out of that drought and now hopefully I can kick on with a few more.”

Chesterfield doubled their lead in the 39th minute after Dan Gardner broke from a Minstermen corner and slipped in Roberts who finished across goal. “I couldn’t believe Gary didn’t cross it to me. I was screaming at him to pull it back but he slotted it into the bottom corner and I’m delighted for him," explained the striker.

“I think we ended up with more players in their box then they had getting up the pitch trying to get the goal. It shows the hunger that the team have to be top of the league.”

The 2-0 victory against York followed a 3-1 win over Northampton Town on Saturday - the first time Chesterfield have recorded back-to-back away wins this season and Doyle attributes the success to the strong starts made in both matches.

He said: “I think we’ve started well in both games and blown both teams away. I think we did that again tonight, we were 2-0 up fairly early and it set a tempo for the game. Second half we changed it a bit, got a bit uglier to see it out and it seems to be working for us.

“We’re all on a high now, we’ll take that into training now and for the rest of the week and look forward to the weekend.”
