After the Spireites’ 2-0 victory at Aldershot Town on Saturday, John Sheridan claimed that he was pleased with how his side controlled the majority of the game.

“I’m chuffed to bits. The most important thing for the position that we are in is to get three points in every game we play as quickly as we can,” said Sheridan.

“I think we were probably fortunate to go in ahead at half time. I don’t think we played great, we allowed Aldershot to control most of the first half.

“We got the goal and it just gives you that lifeline and belief. I thought we were very solid second half.

“I thought we controlled most of the game.”

Will Evans scored both Chesterfield goals on his return to his former club, and Sheridan voiced how happy he was with the defender’s performance.

The boss said: “I’m pleased he scored from a corner because I’ve been told we haven’t scored many set plays.

“Two great finishes from Will, with the first goal and with the second he stays calm and tucks it away nicely.

“It’s good for the supporters because it’s a long trip and they can go home happy.”

The Spireites face twelfth place Barrow at the Proact in their next National League game, and the Chesterfield boss put forward that he hopes Saturday’s win will give the team confidence heading into their next fixture.

“It’s my first league game but hopefully this gives us a bit of confidence. Hopefully, they’ll be a decent crowd and it’s a tough game,” explained Sheridan.

“I’m only trying to take care of us. I want us to go out, believe in ourselves and believe we can get out of the situation we are in.

“I believe strongly and that’s why I’ve come. We need to keep us in this division and win games as quickly as possible to make life easier for us.”
