Cook: "Our lads have given me everything they've got"

Spireites manager Paul Cook reacted to his side's amazing comeback victory over Yeovil Town on a very Good Friday for Chesterfield.

Having gone two goals behind Sam Hird pulled a goal back with a header before substitute Jay O'Shea scored two beauties to claim all three points for the travelling Spireites at Huish Park.

Cook was understandably pleased with the spirit shown by his squad: "That's football isn't it? To be fair to the lads again, they keep finding a way, great credit to them and I keep heaping them with praise.

"We made a couple of little changes at half time because we weren't under pressure in the game but we were conceding chances.

"We needed to dominate the ball, we needed to get up and around the box and create more openings. Jay O'Shea will get all the plaudits tonight and rightly so."

Having climbed into the top six with the win at Bradford City on Tuesday, the result at Yeovil strengthens Chesterfield's position in the play-offs, not that the Spireites manager is counting any chickens yet.

"I'm comfortable with everything at the moment" said Cook. "I've got great faith in the players, great faith in the supporters. Like I say all the time, if you win games we'll get there, if we don't win games we won't. It's no use me crying and moaning after games if we don't win or saying how good we are when we do.

"We just keep going, the end league table will determine where we finish and I think I'll look back at the end of the season and say that our lads have given me everything they've got.

"Whatever happens at the end of the season, I'll be a happy man. If we're above that line I'll be a little bit happier."
