Wilson: "Now we're fully-focused on what we need to do"

9 May 2016

Speaking after a "tepid" end-of-season display at Bradford City on Sunday, manager Danny Wilson says that the focus is now on improving the side ready for 2016/17.

With a number of players out of contract and with uncertain futures, Wilson explained that with safety secured in Sky Bet League 1 the Spireites' management team are on with planning their playing staff for the new campaign.

"I'm delighted to get this out the way," he said. "Now we can fully concentrate on the job in hand and that's looking towards next season.

"It's about recruitment. It's about letting players know who's wanted and who will not be and starting the process going in earnest on Monday.

"We don't know what options we have yet (for making a new squad), we'll be sitting down to discuss that this week. Now we've got the games out the way we won't be distracted by that, now we're fully-focused on what we need to do."

On Sunday lunchtime the season was rounded-off with a loss as an early strike from Lee Evans and a late finish from Billy Clarke saw Bradford City head into the play-offs with a comfortable Valley Parade win, with Sam Hird receiving a second-half red card.

While the pressure was off for his side, the performance still hurt the Spireites manager: "Even though I said we were okay last week I still wanted to put in a good performance and make it as difficult as possible for Bradford, and we didn't do that often enough.

"With the payers that we had out there we should have done a lot more going forwards. We were very lightweight up front, we never got hold of the ball for large periods of the game so all-in-all it was quite tepid."
