With his move to Chesterfield confirmed this morning, striker Jordan Slew spoke about his time on trial at the club and the challenges that lie ahead for him.

The former Blackburn Rovers striker has been training with Danny Wilson's men since leaving Cambridge United at the start of the month and fed back on his time training with the squad.

"It's been fantastic since I came in," he said. "At first I just wanted to come in and be in with the lads but in the last few days I've just been dying to play and help the team climb up the table.

"I'm going to work hard every day in training and in games whether I start or come on as a sub I'm going to work hard and hopefully score some goals. If I'm called upon at all I'm ready 100%."

Slew also says he's enjoying working alongside the current strikers in the squad: "We have terrific strikers here. I've been watching Sylvan Ebanks-Blake since he was at Wolves and I was a kid. It's great being around players like that and hopefully I can learn from them as much as they may be able a little from me."

"I'm still confident in my ability and still relatively young so now it's about working hard to become an even better player. I've still got plenty of time to improve and that's what I want to do at Chesterfield."

The Sheffield-born striker is looking forward to moving back home and thinks it could have a positive effect as he looks to get back to his top form.

He said: "It is nice, I've been away for about five years now so it's nice to be home. It gives you the comfort you need when you're away from the ground because it's important that you have your family and friends around you."
