After valiantly holding Colchester United to a 1-1 draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, midfielder Robbie Weir believed the result was a good point gained for the Spireites.

The Spireites weathered a lot of early pressure to go ahead just before half time, courtesy of great strike from Louis Reed just outside the box.

However, despite gallant resistance they conceded an equaliser when Colchester substitute Brandon Hanlan headed past Tommy Lee following a long throw-in with eight minutes remaining.

Speaking exclusively to iFollow the midfielder said: “I think after the result on Saturday it was very important we didn’t get beat tonight so I think it’s a point gained.

“I thought we were very good first half, but in the second half we dropped off a little bit.

“It’s just how it is, everyone’s low on confidence after the result last week and where we’re situated in the table so it’s a very good point.”

Weir made his return to the first team after serving a one match suspension folloiwng his red card against Coventry City on September 2.

Prior to missing the Crewe Alexandra match, Weir had started all the club’s Sky Bet League Two fixtures and he’s looking to pick up from where he left off.

Next up for Weir and his team mates is a home match against third placed Accrington Stanley on Saturday and the Northern Irishman is optimistic about the team’s chances.

He added: “We’re at home and we’re going to take the game to them, we can take a lot of confidence from tonight.”
