Mitchell: "I think it was a good point for us"

4 January 2017

Reece Mitchell has found himself back in the starting XI in recent matches against Port Vale and MK Dons and wants to remain in the team.

The winger played 66 minutes of the goal-less draw against MK Dons and says he's looking to build on the positives from that performance.

“Personally I think I’ve done ok but I’d like to do more,” Mitchell said. “It’s good to get a clean sheet but my side of the game is more attacking so if the team can score more goals then I’ll be happy. 

“I try to commit people, get into dangerous areas and win free kicks because Jay O’Shea’s got a good delivery so anything can happen.” 

The draw with the Buckinghamshire club ended a run of two successive defeats after a tough festive period, and Mitchell praised Ryan Fulton and his defence for the way they dealt with late pressure. 

He said: “I thought they were excellent. They were tough to beat and even when we were under the cosh towards the end, they stuck at it, worked hard and kept their clean sheet so I’m happy for them. 

“I think it was a good point for us, it was well-fought. They’re a good team and came out the blocks well, obviously with the way results have been the last couple of weeks I think it was a good point on the board and a clean sheet.” 

The Spireites travel to Bradford City on Saturday for their next Sky Bet League One fixture and the 21-year-old is under no illusions of the difficult task ahead to get another result. 

He commented: “They’re doing well in the league, but I think we can take a lot of promise from this performance.

“Going there will be difficult with their big fan-base but I think if we stick together we can get a result.”
