Chesterfield found themselves in the lead twice against Barnet on Saturday thanks to a debut brace from Mike Fondop but were held to a 2-2 draw and after the game, John Sheridan stated that individual errors cost his side the victory.

“I thought the performance was okay,” he said to Spireites Digital.

“The biggest disappointment is that we were in the lead twice in the game.

“We got off to a great start with a great goal.

“We invited them on to us and allowed their player to come inside from a wide area for the first goal.

“We were telling them to show him outside but we show him inside and it’s a good finish from their player.

“Both teams could have scored more goals.

“We’ve had some really good chances but it wasn’t to be.”

New signing Fondop only joined up with his new teammates yesterday and was impressive on his debut.

The Chesterfield boss praised his new striker after the match, by saying: “I thought he was excellent.

“He gave us a nice bright spark on the front foot.

“He scored two great goals and you can see he is a handful.

“He’s come in and made us a little bit sharper.”

Jermaine McGlashan also played his first game for the Spireites and Sheridan mentioned that the winger was a threat to Barnet throughout the fixture.

“He looked very bright,” explained the manager.

“He’s come in late and I know what he’s all about, he’s an experienced player.

“You can see his directness and he’ll get better once he has trained with the lads.

“He was very positive when he had the ball and he got in good areas.”
