After Tuesday night’s draw away at Maidenhead United, Chesterfield boss John Sheridan claimed that the performance was an improvement from the defeat to Dover but was disappointed that his side didn’t pick up all three points.

“We should never have been in a position to have to battle back,” he said.

“The game should have been over.

“I’ve just told them that we have to be more clinical and more ruthless.

“I thought the way we played was excellent after Saturday’s disappointment.

“We played some good stuff and moved the ball quickly.

“I’m disappointed that we’ve only got a point.

“I knew they were going to come back into the game.

“Our biggest downfall from tonight is that we didn’t take our chances.”

Haydn Hollis and Laurence Maguire returned to the starting line-up after missing out on the first game of the season due to injury.

Sheridan put forward that the Spireites will have a strong team when other members of the squad return, by saying: “When we’ve got everyone fit we’ve got a strong outfit.

“When Denton, Spyrou and Gerrard come back we are going to be a strong team.

“I want everyone fit and competing for places.”

Sam Wedgbury made his first start since suffering a serious knee injury almost a year ago and the Spireites manager spoke positively about seeing the midfielder return to action.

“One thing he does is talk,” explained Sheridan.

“It’s good for him to get back on the pitch.

“He’s still a bit short but I thought he did alright.

“Playing is the only thing that is going to help him so the more he plays the quicker he’ll get to where he wants to be.”
