Wilson: "Both teams knew the importance of the three points"

27 March 2016

After the goal-less Proact draw with Fleetwood Town, Spireites manager Danny Wilson was satisfied with the way his side gathered another important point.

In a game of more guts than glory Ollie Banks had the best chance of the game, firing just over the bar after he had fashioned himself a fine opportunity in the first half.

"It was a bit fragmented at times," said Wilson of the match. "I think both teams knew the importance of the three points and both teams made chances. We had the clearest ones but we didn't take them.

"To come away with a point at the end we need to be fairly satisfied because at this stage any point can make the difference, and hopefully that will the case.

"We've not made their 'keeper work enough with the chances we've created, but thankfully we've kept things fairly solid throughout the team and we didn't get cut apart too often."

With Chesterfield now having lost just once in their last eight games, Wilson spoke of the importance of maintaining the positive run of results.

He explained: "It keeps the little unbeaten run going as well, that helps with confidence, it was a very tense affair but thankfully we've come away with something.

"The players know the value of the run and they know the little steps we're taking with a point here and a point there.

"We'd love it to have been three points, but sometimes you have to be happy with smaller mercies. We go to a very tough place on Monday with everything to play for."
