Mark Crossley spoke to Spireites Digital after the 1-1 draw at home to Wrexham in the FA Cup and gave his thoughts on the game.

He said: “I think on chances today, we probably should have won it, especially with the chance at the end.

“We spoke about turning their defence and face their own goal and give us an opportunity that way. That’s the way the goal came about.

“Unfortunately, we conceded in the same vein. So, pretty much similar goals really. We have to go again."

Crossley also spoke about the improved defensive displays of late. “It’s what we were concerned about, conceding goals," he said. "It would have been nice to have keep another clean sheet and go through.

"I think as a whole, the team are defending better. There’s still a lot to be done but we’re making improvements."

Sam Wedgbury was replaced by Jonathan Smith in the first half after picking up an injury and the goalkeeping coach gave an update on the midfielder, saying: “It looks like he’s got a calf strain.

"It doesn’t look too bad at the moment, but he felt it and he couldn’t carry on. It’s a shame to lose him, but hopefully it won’t be too long.”

Looking ahead to Tuesday night's replay, Crossley added: ““It's the best competition in the world for me and to get to the third round and be in with the big boys would be massive. I think the lads realised that today."
