Chesterfield head coach Jack Lester has told the club website that their performance in the 2-2 draw with Swindon Town was excellent.

The Spireites are stuck at the bottom of Sky Bet League Two and so not many expected them to get any sort of result against Swindon who are fighting for promotion from this league. But they shocked many as they came close to getting a win against the Robins, though they would have to head back to Derbyshire happy with a point.

Swindon took the lead when just after the second half Timi Elsnick scored a goal which many assumed would set them up for the win. However Chesterfield would end up battling back with goals from Kristian Dennis and Jak McCourt giving them a shock lead. They would then suffer a cruel blow when Scott Wiseman fouled Luke Norris in the box before he stepped up to convert the resulting penalty.

Despite this, Lester was very happy with the performance, saying: “The performance was excellent, we came away to Swindon who’ve won five on the bounce and were the better team and we should have won the game had it not been for one or two incidents that didn’t go our way.”

“The players will take great heart from that and by the time Saturday comes we won’t be feeling sorry for ourselves and we’ll be ready to go again. It was a great point here but it should have been three.”

 

Chesterfield will hope to repeat this performance against Exeter City next Saturday.
