Lavery on Spireites Loan Extension

12 March 2015

Having extended his loan stay with the Spireites until the end of the season, striker Caolan Lavery sat down to talk about his time at the Proact.

Signed on transfer deadline day and with the big shoes of the departing Eoin Doyle to fill, the Sheffield Wednesday man has bagged three goals already, including the 90th minute winner to see the Spireites again win at Stadium MK last week.

Lavery says that he's enjoying his time with Chesterfield and is excited about the challenge that awaits in the remainder of the Sky Bet League 1 campaign.

"I'm looking forward to being here for the rest of the season," said the 22 year-old. "Chesterfield have given me the opportunity to play games and I've come in and adjusted after the first couple of games and done well in the last few.

"It's a good club and I've enjoyed every day that I've been here and learned more about the people. We've got a big few games coming up and I'm looking forward to them."

A knee injury earlier in the season put Lavery out of action for a sustained period, but now back and amongst the goals the striker spoke about what he and Sheffield Wednesday hope to get out of the now prolonged spell in Derbyshire.

He said: "They just want me to play games and continue what I'm doing at the minute. I missed the first half of the season through injury so I've not played a lot of games this season.

"Chesterfield have given me the opportunity to stay and Sheffield Wednesday have allowed me to stay out so I'll try and play more games and we'll see what happens from there."

Having spent over a month with his new teammates Lavery is now in a position to assess the squad, and is optimistic of his side's chances of making it into the top six come May.

"I don't see why we can't make the play-offs," he said. "Since I've been here I haven't seen a team that's really out-played us, even though we've had some bad results. I don't think there are many teams who are too much better, from what I've seen."
