The Opposition View


Following yesterday's 2-1 defeat to Chesterfield, here are some views on the game from the Spireites' manager John Sheridan and a few of their fans.


The Chesterfield boss told his players to enjoy being top of the league.

"It will be nice to pick the papers up and see ourselves at the top. I've told them to go and have a beer and enjoy themselves while we're at the top. We won't get carried away after this game even though I think it is our best result this season," he said.

"It was a hard earned win in a tough game. But it was a good away performance against a good team. We defended well and on occasion if we had picked a better pass we could have caused them more problems."


The Chesterfield fans were as delighted as you would expect them to be after watching their side win away at a promotion rival to go to the top of the league.

The following extracts are taken from Bob's Board and BBC 606.

'Wycombe did look quite good, and I'm sure they'll be in the play-off spots at the sharp end of the season.'

'I think we are getting pretty good at this smash and grab lark. Away from home we tend to defend a lot and hit on the break. That's our style - we can defend but we also have pace in abundance.'

'Great win, made even better by Vale failing to win. Wycombe will be up there come May, what a fantastic 3 points today.'

'After a gap of 15 years we finally get another win at Wycombe. Praise to Tommy for that save, and praise to Davies for his two goals, but special praise to Ford who NEVER put a foot wrong. Also praise to the ref - definitely the best WE have had this season.'

'Overall a very good win, a top away performance against a good side. The Wycombe fans were very quiet which helped our cause no end.'

'Today was our best away performance in the league. We were put under tremendous pressure but we scored first with a free header and when they equalised I was confident we would take the game because they still had to come at us and that left gaps. I think the most important factor today was that we had a referee who wasn't against us like most we get and I thank him for that. Their penalty claim was legit and after the offside goal I thought this is going to be our day. I think Wycombe will be seething about the officials tonight. Today was my first ever visit to Adams Park and I liked their ground.'
