Ritchie Humphreys spoke to PlayerHD after the reserves' Scunthorpe win this week and discussed his role leading the second string side this season.

Goals from Liam Graham and Laurence Maguire decided the contest against a young Iron side, and Humphreys talked about his role leading the side.

"It's great, I'm really enjoying it," he said. "It's completely different from taking a session in training for 20 or 30 minutes.

"Doing the team talk, going through the set plays, preparing for the game and watching the game as it's going on to see how things can be changed tactically with the team we're playing against.

"Sometimes with young players and other coming back from injury it's a challenge to put things together, get a group and get results.

"The most important thing is to improve them as players technically and tactically and that when they come in and play together they're all on the same page when they play the games."

Still on the playing books with the Spireites, Humphreys spoke about the assistance he has received from manager Danny Wilson and the rest of the coaching staff at the club.

"I've had plenty of help, I've worked with Danny at a number of clubs now and from someone who's managed over a 1,000 games you can't not learn.

"I've known Chris Morgan too for a number of years and Mark Crossley as well so with that experience it's a great help to all of us."
