The Spireites may have only gained a point against Wimbledon, but a dynamic performance, led by Gboly Ariyibi, gave supporters an insight into what they can expect from Gary Caldwell’s tenure.

The winger was a constant threat for the Spireites and explained how the new manager has already brought the best out of him. 

“He just told me to get back to how I play and do what I do best,” Ariyibi told Player HD.  “The performance was definitely there and he has got a lot of presence about him, he encourages the lads a lot. 

“For me personally, he seems like someone who will give the young boys confidence. He is not scared of making mistakes, he just wants us to be positive and that is what we showed today.”

With the team looking to climb out of the bottom four, the 22-year-old spoke of the impact that this performance will have on the team going into a two-week break. 
“It was definitely a point gained because of the performance from all the boys,” the winger continued. 

“I’m sure that anyone watching today would agree that we deserved to win the game, so there are definitely positives to take from it.”

Caldwell told Player HD after the match that his style of play would look to take advantage of the attacking talent at the club and Ariyibi said that this performance was evidence of that. 

“I think a lot of the boys would agree that this is the best we have played in a while, we created lots of chances and hopefully if we keep playing well then we will definitely climb up the table,” Ariyibi added.
