After Saturday’s defeat at home to Chorley, manager John Sheridan explained that conceding sloppy goals meant his side fell to their first league defeat in four games.

“I was going into the game confident, we were on a decent run,” he said.

“We can’t concede the type of goals that we have conceded today.

“The goals put you under pressure and it allows them to get a foothold in the game.

“We gave ourselves too many problems.

“They are the sort of goals that we were conceding at the start of the season.

“At 2-1 we get back in the game and we nearly score.

“We can’t give those type of goals away.”

Both Josef Yarney and Gevaro were not part of the matchday squad and the boss explained that Yarney was missing due to injury and Gevaro is away on international duty with Curacao.

“Gevaro is away on international duty,” explained the manager.

“We missed him because he gives us that balance.

“Yarney has got a hamstring strain so we’ve got to be careful with him.”

The Spireites will be looking to bounce back when they travel to Harrogate next Saturday for their upcoming National League fixture.

Sheridan claimed that he has to stick with the tactics that have seen Chesterfield’s form pick up in recent weeks.

“I’ve just got to stick to my guns,” he stated.

“I think we could have got something out of the game eventually.

“I’ve got to stick with what I think will get us the results we are after.”
