Anyon: "We've got to be better as a team."

Chesterfield goalkeeper Joe Anyon was left frustrated after the Spireites suffered a 1-0 defeat away at Luton Town yesterday.

Anyon was beaten by a strike from Luton striker Danny Hylton in the 53rd minute at Kenilworth Road which settled the game in the Hatters favour.

Speaking exclusively to iFollow, Anyon said: “It’s a tough place to come, they are flying high and we did have stages of the game where we got through on goal and worked their goalkeeper.

“But we’ve got to be better as a team and keep that goal out, if we do that we come away with a point.”

The clash in Bedfordshire was the first under caretaker manager Guy Branston, who replaced Gary Caldwell last weekend.

The club’s director of recruitment and development oversaw training this week and Anyon says that the players have responded well to his methods.

“It’s been good,” he commented. “Guy is very direct in what he wants. He’s been around football a long time so he has valuable experience.

“He’s come in and has been positive, we’re in a position now where we all need to stick together and build for the next few games and that’s what he’s done.”

Branston’s first game in charge could have ended in a draw had the Spireites taken their chances, the best of which fell to Andy Kellett and Louis Reed.

Despite Luton also having chances, Branston expressed his happiness with what the team produced, with Anyon in agreement that there are positives to take into Tuesday’s home fixture with Yeovil Town, 7.45pm.

The goalkeeper added: “That’s what we’ve spoke about, we don’t want too many of those results, but we’ve come to Luton and stayed strong and positive.

“We’ve got to take those positives on to Tuesday night and that’s what we will be doing, along with looking at how Yeovil play and trying to get a win at home.”
