Herd Calls for Club Unity

Chris Herd is enjoying life with the Spireites after his recent arrival, and spoke to PlayerHD about Saturday's game, pushing forward together and his time at the Proact.

The Spireites went down 3-1 to Gillingham at the weekend, but Herd felt that besides conceding preventable goals his side could have taken more from the game.

He said: "It was three unfortunate goals from set pieces, we still need to work on not conceding goals as a whole team. We played some excellent stuff, and if we cut out the goals I don't think they'd be any stopping us.

"We've got to keep our heads up and move forwards, and not look back. 

"We've got a great team spirit and we need to stick together as a whole club: the team, manager, the coaching staff and the fans, if we do that I'm sure we'll have a successful season."

The Australia international has started the last two matches in the centre of midfield with Sam Morsy, and it's a partnership the two feisty players seem to be enjoying as Herd improves upon his fitness after a lengthy injury lay-off.

"We're both players who like to get about the action," said Herd. "Sam's good to play along with so hopefully we can build a good partnership and get the results we deserve.

"I'm feeling a lot better, that was my fourth game and I'm feeling a lot fitter. I need to work hard with Mal (Purchase, fitness coach) and the team and I'm feeling better every day.

"I'm really enjoying it, the most I've enjoyed football for a while. I've settled in quickly with the lads and it's been really enjoyable. We've got a great squad here and I don't think we'll have any problems in finishing high up in this league."
