Ebanks-Blake: "We'll shake it and we'll get it right"

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake netted his fifth goal in five league games on Saturday, but despite giving the hosts the lead the Spireites eventually lost 2-1 to Oldham Athletic.

The 29-year-old raised his Spireites total to seven goals for the campaign, but on a wet and windy afternoon the Spireites slumped to another home disappointment.

Ebanks-Blake tried to find the reason for the defeat: "It's difficult to put a finger on it, I think Oldham stayed in the game though we were controlling it for large parts.

"They've undone us through our own mistakes; one of the goals we've got to get out and stop the shot. We're disappointed today because it was a great opportunity to continue the good run we've been on, but we've got to move on.

"It was difficult to play in those conditions, but it's that time of year. We've all played football for long enough now, the pitches get boggy, the weather conditions change and we've got to adapt to that."

The striker's goal was a typical piece of penalty area poaching as following Dan Jones's run and low cross Ebanks-Blake was able to slam home the loose ball from close range.

However, the front man says he would swap his goal for a home win: "I'm delighted to score goals but I'd prefer to score goals and the team win. I'd prefer to have got the three points today than score but it wasn't to be.

"It's hard to put a finger on the home form because we play well, but we seem to just let it slip and we should really put the foot on the opposition and finish them off.

"We'll shake it, we've got too many good players in the team not to and we'll get it right."
