The Opposition View - Chesterfield

The Opposition View - Chesterfield


Following Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Chesterfield at Whittingham Moor, here are some views on the Spireites first league win of the new campaign from caretaker-boss Tommy Wright.

'We made it difficult for ourselves, but I thought we started ever so well. The front two of Jack [Lester] and Rico [Marc Richards] were really good and although the sending off affected the game, that was from our good play.'

'It was definitely a sending off and then we scored two good goals and the second-half - you have to give credit to Gary Waddock because he had a system that caused us one or two problems - I thought we got a little bit nervous and stopped doing the simple things.'

'We had a spell in that first-half where we nearly got the third goal and I think if we had, it would have settled us down. But, we conceded a very poor goal and that has to be addressed because we're conceding poor goals and it gave them a bit of a light at the end of the tunnel. But the third goal really killed them off and it's a fantastic result for us.'

The Spireites fans expressed a mixture of happiness and relief after collecting their first three points in League Two against the Chairboys.

The irony here is that we've played far better than that in other games this season and failed to win. Wycombe were dire.

I thought Wycombe tried their best in testing circumstances and still knocked it about decently with only ten men, fair play to them.

I know I'm going to sound ungrateful but I wasn't impressed, we should've killed them off well before Trotman hoofed one into his own net.

Wycombe were poor and we struggled in the second half against ten men. Them getting sent down to ten men early on didn't help. Second half we were poor and they passed the ball around.

A few of our players tired badly, when it should have been them tiring as we should have had them doing all the running to make up for the extra man, but they had us doing all the running.

Wycombe are in disarray and the fans want the manager out, but they can't afford to sack him as they are 5 million in debt!

Dean Morgan was at his lazy, dis-interested worst today. Wailed around sulking when he lost the ball and did nothing really. If he couldn't get up for this game, he has no hope.

Can anyone tell me why, after they played for 80 minutes with ten men, did they look a lot fitter than our players? We faded far more in the second half than they did.

Glad to get the three points today. We made hard work of it but it's always difficult against ten men as they always go defensive and counter attack.

MDCCCLXVI
We began well, forcing Wycombe onto the back foot and deservedly taking the lead but worryingly Wycombe enjoyed the better of the midfield possession and created chances in the second half.

Sammy Spireite
Big question of the day has to be what was written on the piece of paper that their trainer passed to their right winger. He passed it to their right back, who then passed it to their centre-half midway through the first half.

It was around A5 size and he read it then screwed it up and threw it in their penalty area, when preparing to defend a corner. I expected Jack to pick it up and read it but no. Presumably, after watching the rest of the game, it probably said 'kick their number 14'!
