Flores: "They couldn't live with us in the end"

New signing Jordan Flores says that his first game in a blue shirt was a very satisfying experience.

Goals from Kristian Dennis and Jordan Sinnott against Port Vale gave the Spireites their first win of the season, with the on-loan Wigan Athletic man playing initially as a wing-back before moving to the left of a midfield diamond.

“It was an enjoyable game; it’s good to get the win and also get the clean sheet,” Flores told iFollow.

“I played there a few times under the gaffer at Wigan. I’m comfortable there but I like to think I am a central midfielder.

“We did switch it up a little bit but I’m comfortable out on the left.”

Early on it was the visitors who were the better of the two sides and the Spireites defence had to defend well to combat the Vale threat.

That resolve, along with the change in tactics, helped Gary Caldwell’s men get a foothold and they didn't relinquish it.

“We did do well to defend the set pieces,” Flores asserted. “We changed the formation up and started getting composed, we then started getting the ball and passing it and they couldn’t live with us in the end.”

Flores was substituted late in the game after putting in a display that included some good passing and he also provided an attacking outlet.

His efforts certainly made an impression with the Proact faithful, as they gave him a standing ovation as he left the pitch.

The former Blackpool loanee said: “It was a good reception coming off at the end.

“The fans were great all through the game and they really urged the team to get the win.”

Flores has now set his sights on building on his debut performance in next Saturday’s trip to Newport County.

He added: “I look forward to it, but we’ll take every week as it comes.

“Today has really kicked off the season and hopefully we will take that into next week.”
