Assistant manager Glynn Snodin gave his thoughts on last night’s 2-1 win at Hallam FC. Although happy with the result, Snodin picked up on a few points to improve upon in the run-up to the new season.

“It’s still early doors at the moment,” he said.

“We still want to be better in that last third. We’ve got to have better decision making and we’ve got to be more clinical.”

Monday’s game was Chesterfield’s second friendly match of pre-season, and Snodin highlighted that becoming more clinical was something that the squad needs to work on, as it took a late volley from Jack McKay to see off last night’s opponents.

“We’ve had chances, but we need to make sure we finish teams off like this,” Snodin explained.

Snodin admitted that the players were lacking slightly in match sharpness, and also mentioned how the pitch conditions weren’t ideal, but he believes that the players dealt with the game professionally.

“You play the conditions, and you have to play them well,” claimed the assistant manager.

“We had a strong side out there and you’ve got to do things right.”

Snodin agreed when asked if he was pleased to get the goals in the end and come away with a win, however, he insisted that results aren’t too important in pre-season, by saying: “You always want to come away with a win, but I know results don’t matter. You can’t read into that.

“You just want to make sure that everybody does a professional job, they do the things right that we want them to do and they go out there for 90 minutes and do it.”

Sam Wedgbury returned to action for the first time in nearly a year on Saturday at Staveley but was left out of last night’s squad.

On Wedgbury’s omission, Snodin said that due to the match away at Matlock tonight, the decision to leave him out was purely a precautionary measure

“After the year he’s had, we don’t want to wreck him because there’s nothing game tomorrow and hopefully he’ll play a part in that as well,” said Snodin.

In preparation for tonight’s game at Matlock, the assistant manager stated that they have a rough idea of what the squad will be for the fixture but the staff will assess fitness levels in today’s training session.

He put forward that: “We’ll assess it when we get in there tomorrow, have a look at the bodies but we’ve got it in our heads what we want to do.”

Lastly, Snodin touched on the ability of Liam Mandeville who scored the equaliser from the spot before assisting Jack McKay’s winner.

The assistant manager explained: “He’s got something different, he’s a maverick.

“Sometimes he’ll frustrate you, but then other times he’ll just win you the game from nothing.”

The Spireites head to Matlock tonight for their third pre-season match, the game kicks off at 7:30 pm.
