Ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Torquay United, John Sheridan spoke to the media and began by voicing his disappointment after last weekend’s defeat at Bromley.

“I was massively disappointed not to get something from the game,” he said.

“I knew it would be a tough game. We showed good things in the game.

“The goals we conceded were very poor on our part.

“The good thing from the game was I thought we came out in the second half and bossed the game.

“We showed a bit of character to get back in the game and when we did score we looked the better team.

“I’ve just got to stick with my beliefs and hope things turn around.”

Tom Denton has been absent since the start of the season after picking up an injury before the beginning of Chesterfield’s pre-season campaign.

The Spireites boss revealed on Friday that the striker will be available for the Torquay clash but is unsure whether the 30-year-old will start the game.

“He’s in the squad for tomorrow,” Sheridan confirmed.

“He has trained all week so he’ll be in the squad.

“We’ll make a decision whether he plays or not.

“When I came in last year he did well for me so hopefully he’ll push the players that are already there.

“He brings something different with his height and he causes danger in the opposition’s box.”

Torquay United were crowned National League South champions last season and are currently in eighth place in the National League.

The Chesterfield manager put forward that his side have to be on the front foot if they are to get the better of Gary Johnson’s men, by saying: “They’re a good team.

“They were a successful team last year and they’ve got an experienced manager who knows the game.

“They’re one of the bigger clubs in the league and they have got off to a decent start.

“We’ve got to be positive and believe that the first win is just around the corner.”
