Dennis: "I'm hoping to get a few more"

Kristian Dennis has a first Spireites goal to his name, now the striker is hungry for more first-team chances for the opportunities to bang in further strikes.

That opening Chesterfield goal came as his side hosted Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Checkatrade Trophy on Tuesday night, an effort that turned out to be the winner in a 2-1 victory.

"It was just a couple of minutes after their goal, the ball just fell to me on the edge of the box and I hit it, luckily it got a little deflection and went in so I was really happy to get my first goal.

"Any goal, any games, as long as you score it counts! I'm hoping to get a few more with more games to come." said Dennis

The 26-year-old has been likened to Liverpool great Robbie Fowler in his playing style, and Dennis spoke about their striking similarities.

"I've had that comparison quite a lot," said Dennis. "People have said I don't do a lot but just score, it's not a bad thing to have on your back. I'm trying to bring more things into my game and hopefully be a better player.

"I couldn't tell you how I do it, I just seem to pop up in places and get goals and that's it really. I'm here to score some goals and then give the manager a tough decision and hopefully get a few more games.

"It's a hell of a lot quicker at this level, there's no waiting around for anything, as soon as you get the ball there's a man on you. I'm getting up to speed and loving it."
