Chesterfield midfielder, Jordan Sinnott, spoke of his delight after the Spireites secured their first win of the season on Saturday, defeating Port Vale 2-0 at the Proact.

Kristian Dennis was on hand to give his team the lead, before new signing Sinnott added a second to wrap up all three points inside the opening 45 minutes.

Sinnott was one of the stand out men for Gary Caldwell's side this weekend and reflecting on the display the Spireites number eight said: "We feel like it's been coming with the performances, especially with the Grimsby Town game and at Notts County we played well in patches.

"Today I think we started a bit slow and were under the cosh, but the lads all dug in and then for about a 15 to 20-minute period in the first half we were unplayable and effectively that's won us the game."

The former Halifax midfielder opened his account for the club with a composed finish inside the area, but in the same phase of play struck the bar with a brilliant dipping effort.

"I surprised myself,” he told iFollow. “I thought it was going over so I've watched it and I've seen it shoot back up in the air and thought I better get on the second ball.

"The lads were laughing with me because normally we have some of them in training and I try to thrash them in, but I noticed all the defenders were coming one way so I just side footed it into the inside netting."

Sinnott's performance also included an assist for the opening goal, playing a lovely ball in behind which was finished well by Dennis.

"When you're not scoring it's always nice to set up, we work on them a lot in training - front passing and running in behind so it's nice to see when it comes off on a match day," he said.

Sinnott has struggled with injury since arriving at the club this summer, but after playing the majority of the match on Saturday is keen to get back to full fitness.

"It's been a bit frustrating with me - a bit stop start with my quad injury so I'm still trying to get back fully fit,” the midfielder explained.

"I still haven't played a full 90 minutes yet this season, but Mick McBride our physio has been brilliant with me, getting me to the best standard I can be.

"I played 85 minutes today which is another bonus, I take more out of that than scoring and setting up because I want to show people what I can do here.” 

Sinnott unfortunately had to come off late in the game, but ensured his substitution was nothing to worry about.

"Everything is fine,” he added. “it was just a bit of soreness with my quad but it's alright."
