After Chesterfield’s 2-0 win away at Barnet on Tuesday night, John Sheridan stated that the performance could have been better, but was pleased with the desire that his players showed on the night.
“It was a great result, but I wouldn’t say it was a great performance,” he explained to Spireites Digital.
“I just want us to look a good team, and win a bit more comfortably. This isn’t being hard or harsh on the players, I want us to be a good team and competing at the top of the table.
“I think we have to do a lot of things a lot better.
“We’ve defended brilliantly and full credit to the players. They’ve got this desire and willingness to defend when they have to.
“I’m proud of the way the players went about the game.”
Charlie Carter scored Chesterfield’s first goal on his first start since September, and Sheridan was happy with how the midfielder took his chance, by saying: “He’s been out a long time and you can see he got a bit tired.
“He was in the right place at the right time to score the goal. He's taken a chance and we need more goals in other areas.
“He has took his chance and it has come off for him.”
Tuesday night’s win is the Spireites’ third away victory in a row and lifts them up to seventeenth in the National League.
The Chesterfield boss finished off by pointing out that they have to make sure they get positive results against teams around them in order to climb the table.
“Barnet are in and around us and it was our game in hand,” he said.
“It enables us to get us a bit further away from the teams near us.
“We’ve got to make sure when we have got games in hand we can get something from the game.
“We’ve just got to keep on winning and get away from the bottom four.”
