Grimshaw: "We can’t make excuses we just weren't good enough."

27 February 2017

Spireites midfielder Liam Grimshaw was hurt after the home defeat to Oxford United on Saturday, and his urged his team mates to work harder to turn things around.

A Conor McAleny hat-trick after Rob Hall’s opener secured a 0-4 win for the visitors, and the result leaves Chesterfield in 23rd position in Sky Bet League One, eight points from safety.

Grimshaw told Player HD: “We need wins at this stage of the season, but it was more the manner of the defeat really, it’s a big gutter.

“In a few of the games recently, we’ve looked like we’re in the game, and then silly mistakes have cost us. 

“We come out for the second half and obviously it’s 2-0, but if we get the next goal then we have half a chance but overall it’s more silly mistakes that have cost us.

“But we can’t make excuses we just weren’t good enough.”

Next up for the Spireites is a trip to Walsall tomorrow night, and the on-loan midfielder believes more hard work is required to turn things around.

He said: “The only thing that you can do is to work hard and give 110% as individuals.

“We’ve had two decent results away but not backed them up at home, hopefully if we put in the type of performance that we did against Millwall then we can get a result at Walsall.
