After the Spireites’ opening day defeat at home to Dover Athletic on Saturday, manager John Sheridan began his post-match interview by stating that his side should have been able to keep hold of their lead.

“It’s a big downer that we didn’t go on to see the game through, which we should do a lot better,” he said.

“In the first half, I really didn’t think we got going at all.

“I told them at half time that I wanted to be playing quicker and going forward.

“We are at home and we should be taking the game to the opposition.

“I thought in the second half leading up to the goal we played really well.

“We just didn’t deal with the game the way we should have done.”

The Chesterfield boss then reiterated his desire to bring in a couple of new faces, by claiming: “We’ve enquired and we are just waiting for the clubs to get back to us.

“Hopefully we can get them.”

The Spireites will look to bounce back when they travel down to Maidenhead on Tuesday night for their next National League fixture.

Sheridan explained that there are still plenty of matches to play in order for the Spireites to push for promotion.

“I would have liked to be going to Maidenhead with three points in the bag,” said the Chesterfield manager.

“There are so many games and the most important thing is to be where we want to be at the end of the season.”
