John Sheridan thought his side could've performed better in the first half against Barrow, but the Spireites boss was positive when talking about his side’s second-half display.

He said: "At the end of the day, the performance wasn’t good enough. However, we were 2-0 down and come out of it. I’m hoping that can be a turning point.

"I've got a good dressing room and we've got to stick together. We need to start winning games though.

"We showed a bit of character in the second half to get back into the game. Possibly could have gone and won the game.

"We were lucky to get a point. I’ve told the players you’ve got to accept it, roll your sleeves up and we’ll see how strong character-wise they are.”

Josef Yarney, Jonathan Smith and Joe Rowley all came on as substitutes in the second half. The Spireites boss was very complimentary of the three players.

“The lads that came on, Yarney, Smith, Rowley,” Sheridan said. “They’ve come on, they’ve had a bit of grit and a bit of desire to go and get something from the game.”

Chesterfield travel to Edgeley Park on Monday to face Stockport County and Sheridan talked about what he expects from his side.

“It’s a tough game against Stockport. It’s going to be really tough. I think it will be a good atmosphere, we’ll take a few there,” he said.

“We’ve got to keep chipping away and working our socks off. We’ve got to believe in ourselves. Just turning up is not good enough.”
