After Saturday’s 2-1 win over Aldershot at the Proact, assistant manager Glynn Snodin stated that the players showed character to see out the victory.
“It was hard work to get those three points,” he said to the media.
“Credit to the boys, they hung in there and they dug in.
“I thought in the last 25 minutes of the first half we started to get a foothold in the game.
“They started off well and we didn’t have a tempo about us.
“The second goal was a good finish.
“When you’ve got time on the ball they are the hardest ones but he (Mandeville) put it away well.”
Sam Wedgbury started his second game in a row and the assistant manager was full of praise for the midfielder, by saying: “He’s been fantastic.
“Even in training, he’s been magnificent.
“In the changing room he is a character and he’s the one that you hear.
“He keeps himself fit and does extra after training.”
The Spireites had to defend their lead for a lengthy period in the second half and were fortunate to see the visitors miss a penalty.
Snodin put forward that he and the rest of the management team want their side to be winning games more comfortably.
“It would be nice if we could win the easy way rather than doing it like we are at the moment,” explained Snodin.
“We want to get a strangled hold of the game and win by two or three.
“We want it so everybody is relaxed and hopefully we can do that very soon.
“We’ve got to make this a fortress by winning better and by putting teams on the back foot.”
Chesterfield will look to make it back to back wins when they welcome Eastleigh to the Proact next Saturday.
