Dennis Planning to be a Menace in Spireites First-team

After beginning life as a starter with a goal last weekend, Kristian Dennis is now planning to show exactly what he can do for his Spireites side in the EFL.

Since being released by Macclesfield Town as a 20-year-old, Dennis has been on a nomadic tour of the non-league, taking in such stopping points as Woodley Sports, Mossley and Curzon Ashton.

However, a blast of goals for Stockport County and Macclesfield Town thrust the 26-year-old Mancunian to the attention of EFL teams, with the Spireites quick to snap-up the striker in May.

Dennis thinks that his striking instincts will also see him prosper in the professional game: "If you're any striker you've got to be confident in your own ability, if you get the ball in front of goal you've got to know you'll take it.

"It's the same whatever level you're at, and I've been like that since I was a kid. As soon as I get the goal in my sight I'll shoot and hopefully it'll go in.

"Before I came in I knew with the calibre of players here it would be tough to get in but I've got my chance now and hopefully I can show the manager what I can do."

A goal on his full debut combined with the Checkatrade Trophy winner to beat Wolves last month has certainly hinted at Dennis's ability to plunder goals in the third tier, and he explained that ending Northampton Town's extended unbeaten run had helped to spur him and his team-mates on last Saturday.

"We heard about the length of their run on the Friday when Morgs (Chris Morgan) said they were 31 games unbeaten," he said. "It's always nice to end someone's run and better still to do it at the Proact. With it being my first start and to get a goal made it extra special.

"I've not seen Bury play but we'll go there in the same mindset as last week against Northampton: get the ball down, play, create chances and hopefully score some goals."
