After the Spireites’ 1-1 draw with Dagenham & Redbridge on Saturday, assistant manager Glynn Snodin claimed that he was happy with the way Chesterfield fought back in the second half.

“I thought the first half we must have had 30 minutes where we were controlling it,” he said.

“I think the way things are going there’s that bit of anxiety. I think when that win comes, it will stop.

“For the goal, we just wondered how we let him in so easily with three centre-halves in there.

“It is difficult to take when you see that happening and we could have been better on our side.

“We thought we put a lot of balls into the box but we didn’t really work the keeper.

“That’s what we keep saying to them. It’s no good just lying down and sulking. You’ve got to make sure that you go out there and give everything for themselves, for the manager, for the fans and for their families.”

David Buchanan missed out on the fixture after picking up a knock in the bank holiday fixture at Stockport. On his absence, Snodin said: “He had a bad tackle here on Saturday and then gets another on Monday.

“He’s going to take a few weeks to recover from it."

Laurence Maguire filled in for left-back Buchanan. The 22-year-old assisted the equalising goal and impressed the assistant manager with his performance.

“I thought he was different class. Him and Joe Rowley as well on the left side. I thought the pair of them were very good,” said Snodin

“To play that role I thought he was very good.”

The draw means the Spireites have still yet to win this season and Snodin highlighted a few things that could drive the team to their first victory, by explaining: “I just keep fighting, I keep working on the training field. I keep trying to get it into their heads that when they come out here that is when it matters.

“But when you’re not winning games, you do things slightly different on here. Hopefully, the wins will come soon.”
