After the Spireites’ 2-2 draw at Boreham Wood on Saturday, assistant manager Glynn Snodin spoke to Spireites Digital and claimed that Laurence Maguire’s sending off was a pivotal moment in the game.
“We are happy with the point at the end of the day,” he said.
“We were sloppy at the start of the game and we didn’t get to the tempo of it.
“You can’t start games like that.
“The lads came back well to get us into the game and we go in at 2-1 up.
“The sending off changed the game.”
John Sheridan stated in Friday’s pre-match press conference that centre back Anthony Gerrard could be back in contention next week after recovering from a hamstring injury.
When asked about the returning defender, Snodin explained that Gerrard will make a positive impact when he comes back from injury, by saying: “As well as seeing what he can do you’ll hear him.
“Everyone will hear him no matter where you are.
“He’s a leader that organises and wants to win.
“He’s got plenty of attributes which will help us.”
The Spireites host Woking in their next National League fixture on Tuesday night and the assistant manager finished off by emphasising how much the team want to get their first win of the season.
“Of course we do,” Snodin said.
“It’s nice to get points on the board but it’s nice to get that first win on the board as well.
“Hopefully that will come soon.
“There’s no panic at the moment.
“It’s a tough league and I think it’s going to be way closer than last year.”
