Jordan Flores, who scored the second goal in last night's 2-0 victory at Crawley Town, praised the defence after they kept their first away clean sheet of the season.

 Commenting on the rear-guard's display, Flores said: “They were very strong. We were on the back foot the last 10-15 minutes and everything that came in their way they got rid of, so credit to them."

Flores sealed an impressive victory for Chesterfield with a fine strike late on from the edge of the area, after striker Kristian Dennis opened the scoring in the 73rd minute.

Flores was delighted to play a part in Jack Lester's first league win as manager. “It’s always good to win away from home," he said.

"It’s points on the board that we’re looking for and now we have to back it up. We just want to get the tempo going from the start and make sure that we’re all at it."

Flores, who has been used in a variety of positions this season, played in an advanced midfield role and it is a position he enjoys. He said: “It allows me to get on the ball, past the midfield and get in the pockets, playing little balls and linking up with 'Denno' (Kristian Dennis).”

The on-loan Wigan man’s goal was his first in a Chesterfield shirt. “The ball was a bit behind me and I took the touch and thankfully it went in," said Flores. “It only took the ten shots, didn’t it?!”
