Wilson: "It keeps our little mini-run going"

2 March 2016

Chesterfield claimed another point in their race to escape relegation with a 1-1 Blackpool draw on Tuesday and boss Danny Wilson felt the result was a fair one.

In front of 5,915 supporters Brad Potts gave the visitors a deflected lead before substitute Jay O'Shea levelled matters with a stunning long-range strike four minutes later.

"I don't think it was two points lost really, "Wilson said to PlayerHD after the game. "If I'm being brutally honest I think it was a fair result. They had as many chances as we did, especially in the first half.

"How we both came in at 0-0 at half time nobody knows. In the second half in terms of possession we dominated, we had some good chances as well but not taken them, I'll take a point."

With the Spireites now four unbeaten Wilson is pleased to be stringing an unbeaten streak together: "It keeps our little mini-run going and if you do the maths and we'd got a point at Gillingham and a win tonight you'd have taken that."

Introduced as a half time replacement, O'Shea lit up the Proact when he bent an unstoppable 25-yard strike into the top corner - and Wilson was happy with his goalscorer's performance.

"It wasn't to stabilise," said Wilson of the half time change. "We wanted to create a bit more. We thought that with the way Blackpool were set up we felt that Jay could find spaces to operate in and cause problems.

"Thankfully he's come out with a cracking goal for us and in general he created quite a lot in the number ten job and if he's not producing for other people he's going to score himself."
