John Sheridan gave an honest assessment about his side’s performance after the Spireites fell to a 2-0 defeat away at Stockport County.

“I thought we played alright in the first half. I thought we controlled the game. We should take the lead. We were very comfortable about the way we are going about the game in the first half,” he said.

“I’ve gone in; I’ve been as positive as I can. I said keep doing the little things that we’ve been doing well.  We can go on and win this game, it’s there for the taking.

“The goal comes from the right-back. The ball has come from the right-back position and it ends up in the net four passes later.

“It’s not good enough. I didn’t expect this, seven games in and no win. I’ve got to take what’s thrown at me.

“I’ve got to try and be strong. I’ve just got to believe and push on and try and get the results that we need.”

Next Saturday, Chesterfield play Dagenham & Redbridge at the Proact. The boss spoke about what he has to do to see a response from his team.

“We go into training and I’ve got to try and pick them up,” Sheridan stated.

“I’ve got to make decisions that are going to win us football matches.”

There were just under one thousand Spireite fans at Edgeley Park and Sheridan was thankful for the amazing support despite the result.

He said: “I feel for them. I want us all to accept that we're letting them down. It was brilliant support.”
