John Sheridan spoke to the media after Saturday’s 2-1 defeat to Eastleigh and began by explaining how his side should have been in control of the game after taking an early lead.

“The thing that disappoints me the most was that we started alright and we get the goal,” said Sheridan.

“We looked quite confident and we got ahead.

“It’s about taking control of the game. We got off to a great start.

“It’s difficult because we have lost again.”

Tom Denton headed home his second goal of the season to put the Spireites in front but Chesterfield conceded a minute before the break before Eastleigh netted the winner in the 55th minute.

Sheridan stated that he was disappointed by how the Eastleigh goals came about, by saying: “For the first goal he goes up and no one challenges him.

“If you go in 1-0 up you’re more positive.

“With the second goal, their player has reacted quickest.

“We had six men behind the ball and they didn’t react quickly enough.”

Chesterfield will look to return to winning ways when they travel to Fylde and the boss outlined what his side need to implement for them to get a positive result on Tuesday night.

“We need a bit of desire and a bit of knowhow to win a game,” he said.

“You don’t have to play well every game to win.

“The teams at the top of the table might not play well on the day but they get over the line.

“The players are good enough but they aren’t showing it.”
