After the Spireites’ 2-1 loss at home to Bromley, manager John Sheridan gave his honest thoughts about the match.

He said: “I thought it was a good performance against a team who are obviously doing well.

“We controlled the game, got the goal and never saw any danger whatsoever.

“I’m gutted because it was a good solid performance.

“We never looked in danger and I felt we should have gone on tried to get a second.

“We played a team who are second in the league. We looked the better team, we were in control of the game.

“I said at half time 'just go out there and manage the game, see it out'.

“It’s so hard for the supporters to watch and go away with nothing again."

Mike Fondop scored his tenth goal of the season in the 15th minute to put Chesterfield 1-0 up. Between Fondop and Scott Boden, the two strikers have 19 goals between this season.

Sheridan talked about the two forwards link-up play, by saying: “They’ve done alright. I still think their holdup play could be a little bit better.

“Too many times it’s nearly this and nearly that, but Mike has gone and got another goal.”

Chesterfield had two penalty appeals waved away in the second half. The Spireites boss feels as though those decisions heavily impacted the game.

“It’s a definite penalty, I’ve just seen it back,” claimed the manager.

“Sometimes these decisions don’t go for you when you’re at the bottom and if we get it, we could have gone on to win.”
