Ariyibi: "I'm Ready When I get the Chance"

After making his second league appearance off the bench for the Spireites in the 0-3 defeat to Swindon Town, Gboly Ariyibi looked back on the game.

The wide man has had a disjointed start to his Spireites career, suffering bad luck with injury, but was happy to get his longest Proact Stadium run out to date.

He said: "I got some minutes on the pitch- the gaffer just said to get at them and keep the width, and that's what I tried to do today.

"I came back from the international break and I was itching to get back in, I got a little knock and even though it wasn't serious it kept me out for a good month so now I'm just happy to be back playing."

Entering the game with Chesterfield already two goals down, Ariyibi was quickly able to adjust to the pace of the game.

The midfielder said: "It was a fast game when I came on, I tried to keep the width, beat my man and get crosses into the box.

"We had chances to score, as you could see, but if we keep it going we'll start to get some goals."

The Spireites have now gone five games without a win, but the USA under 20 international is not getting too downbeat over the situation.

He said: "We've just come up, we've still going strong game by game. We're playing well and I think we had a good performance today. All of the lads deserve credit but unfortunately it hasn't gone our way again."

"Swindon are a great side, probably one of the best in the league, but now we've got to go again on Saturday. We need to try and get a win soon."

Back in the first team frame, Ariyibi now plans to push on and show his manager that he deserves even longer on the pitch.

Ariyibi said: "I'm trying to prove to the gaffer everyday in training that I've come back stronger. I'm knocking on his door and I'm ready when I get the chance.
