Danny Wilson pulled no punches as he assessed his side and their performance in the 1-0 away loss to Burton Albion.The Friday night match at the table-toppers was decided by a Calum Butcher strike in first half stoppage time, with the Spireites unable to pierce the opposition defence enough in their attempts to strike themselves level.
After the game Wilson told PlayerHD what he thought of the match: "It was exactly what I was talking about before the game: 1-0ers. One chance all the way through, one goal, not well defended. That's the essence of everything.
"The goal that we surrendered was so poor it's unbelievable, but we haven't really laid a finger on them at the other end of the pitch, their 'keeper's had a fairly quiet game.
"We've totally bossed the second half without really creating much and the last two or three games have been exactly the same."
With the emergency loan window now open, Wilson spoke of the club's need to bring in reinforcements to improve their chances of an upturn in form going forwards.
"It's a trend that we've got to buck," he said. "It's important now that we've got this window open that we can try and bring in some players because we're too think on the ground and one or two of the players are not performing.
"It's obvious in certain areas what we need and particularly again with players' injuries we have to look at it very seriously. It's very important that the club as a whole understand what we need and see if we can do something about it."
The evening was further marred by a worrying neck injury to right-back Liam O'Neil, who was stretchered off the field in a neck brace midway through the first half.
Wilson gave details of the player's condition: "We think he's got a neck injury, he's gone to the hospital to be diagnosed and have X-rays I presume.
"I'm a bit in the dark at the moment and we've heard nothing back yet. I'm sure we'll hear more as time goes on."
