After Saturday’s away defeat at Harrogate Town, captain Will Evans explained to Spireites Digital that the performance wasn’t to the level expected.

“I’m not going to sugar coat it, it’s not good enough,” he stated.

“As players, we are out there on the pitch and we are not doing enough.

“When we were in a good run we were working for each other and now we aren’t.

“We aren’t doing things as a team, it’s all individuals out there.

“It’s down to the people out there and the subs, it’s about taking things on board and doing the right things.”

Liam Shaw started at Harrogate to make his Chesterfield debut after signing a month’s loan deal with the club.

Evans claimed that the 18-year-old midfielder showed what he can do in patches and that he’ll learn from the game despite the defeat.

“For a young lad, he’s tidy on the ball,” Evans put forward.

“It wasn’t the best game for him to come into but he gave us little glimpses.

“He looks good and hopefully he gives us a little bit more structure on the ball.

“It’ll be a blow for him but he can build from it.”

The Spireites return to the Proact as they come up against Hartlepool United on Tuesday night in their next National League game.

The defender outlined how he and his teammates will attempt to turn things around, by saying: “We’ve got to work harder and take a hard look at ourselves.

“We know what to do because we’ve done it before and proved it in the four games.

“There are no excuses.

“We have to roll up our sleeves and do what we’ve got to do.

“We can’t dwell on things and we’ve got to start looking at ourselves.”
