Spireites captain Sam Morsy spoke to PlayerHD after Saturday match with Wigan, still shocked after a wild last ten minutes that saw the hosts lose from being two goals clear.
Up until the 80th minute the Spireites were holding their own, edging in front but sustaining further injuries that Morsy feels had a significant effect on hid side's ability to close out the match.
"It's bitterly disappointed," he said. "For 80 minutes we battered them and dominated the game, albeit Tommy Lee's made a couple of good saves. Last ten minutes we were unfortunate in getting another player injured and for a squad of our size when we get players injured it shows.
"Angel's been a massive loss and then to lose Liam O'Neil as well was huge. We saw the warning signs: [Craig] Davies kept rolling us, that was their only threat and we couldn't deal with it.
"It was a real sucker punch, but there are positives to take out of it: we battered one of the title favourites, but if we do want to be successful this season then it's a tough lesson to learn."
The transfer window is now finally shut and Morsy remains in the blue of Chesterfield, the 23-year-old is pleased to still be around and fighting for the Spireites.
He explained: "There were a lot of rumours and speculation but when all was said and done I was happy to stay here and I just want to enjoy a successful campaign here now.
"I'm proud to be captain of the club and all I want is success for the club."
