Dennis: "It’s been the story of our season so far."

Spireites striker Kristian Dennis, says that the last night’s defeat to Bradford City in the Checkatrade Trophy was an all to familiar experience.

Dennis scored the opening goal in the match and one that looked to have given the Spireites the lead heading into the interval, before the Bantams levelled through Omari Patrick, in first half injury time.

An Alex Jones double and a Jacob Hanson strike either side of Jordan Sinnott’s second goal of the season, sealed a 4-2 victory for Stuart McCall’s men, though Dennis believes that had the Spireites held on to their advantage in the first half they could have experienced contrasting fortunes.

“In parts we played well, but it’s been the story of our season so far, playing well and conceding before half time,” the former Macclesfield Town man told iFollow.

“It killed us last night, to be honest, if we’d have gone in at 1-0 up it’s a totally different game second half!

“It’s just down to individual errors that we’ve got to cut out, hopefully on Saturday we’ll get a clean sheet.”

Dennis’ goal in the 24th minute was his fourth of the season so far and also his third in as many games at the Proact.

Next up for the Spireites is the visit of Coventry City on Saturday, 3pm, where Dennis will be looking for that run to continue and despite the team going through a difficult period at the moment, Dennis believes the team can turn things around.

“It’s not like we aren’t scoring or not creating chances,” he added.

“Bar the Notts County game we’ve scored in every game this season, so we’ve just got to cut out the mistakes.

“We’re confident and we know we’re not playing terrible, hopefully we’ll cut out the silly mistakes and get a result on Saturday.”
