Stuckmann: "It’s not over."

9 March 2017

Thorsten Stuckmann is looking for Chesterfield to respond from the Walsall defeat with a complete performance when they face Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.

The keeper, who was the Spireites' best player at the Banks’s Stadium, was frustrated with how the team lost focus at key moments which ultimately cost them a result. 

“Coming into the dressing room now we’re all really disappointed because we wanted back to back wins and we didn’t perform today,” he said. 

“You can only stay in this league if you play for 90 minutes and we switched off at times. We played some sloppy passes and we spoke about the set play that they scored from about 100 times, and there was two men left free at the far post, they’re the little details that can’t happen. We have to look at 
ourselves." 

The Saddlers had the better of the opportunities and could have scored a couple more had it not been for the 35 year-old, who made some fine saves, but Stuckmann is more bothered with a result as a pose to how many he concedes. 

“It doesn’t really matter. I’d rather have let three in and win 4-3, I just want to help the team stay in the game. I had a few good situations where I kept us in but again it doesn’t really help me.  It makes it more disappointing because we should have got something out of it, ” he explained. 

The Spireites game against 18th placed Shrewsbury Town has become even more crucial, if it wasn’t already and the former Preston stopper wants to put the Walsall game behind and re-focus towards the weekend. 

“It’s not over. We have to analyse it and go again on Saturday. I think we owe the fans a win at home and we just have to keep working and performances like last Saturday they get us out of that and if we turn up like we did on Saturday we win the game."
