Mitchell Reflects on Cheltenham Defeat

Spireites winger Reece Mitchell lamented his team’s inability to maintain their bright start, as they lost 2-0 to Cheltenham Town at the Proact yesterday.

Two goals from Mohammed Eisa sealed the victory for the visitors, with his goals coming in the 44th and 68th minutes.

Speaking exclusively to iFollow, Mitchell said: “We started off really well but fell to that sucker punch of a goal.

“We were playing well in parts, I thought we passed really well and created chances. But if they’re putting the ball in the back net and we’re not, then were not going to get any points.”

It’s been a frustrating time for Mitchell who until a second half substitute appearance at Luton Town last week had not featured for the Spireites this season.

Mitchell again started on the bench for the clash with the Robins, but looked lively after coming on for Jordan Flores after the break, going close with a right footed shot just seconds after entering the pitch.

“I’m pleased to be back involved,” he remarked. “I’m just looking forward at the getting chance and hopefully doing well when I do play.

“Today I was told to try make things happen, get some crosses in and run at players.”

Mitchell admitted that all the squad have been given a fresh start under new manager Jack Lester and he’ll be looking to continue staking his claim for a regular place when the Spireites travel to Rotherham United on Tuesday in the Checkatrade Trophy (7pm).

The former Chelsea man added: “A lot of players want to show what they can do, I want to do well and show the manager what I can do and help the team.”
