Chris Wilder reflects on Chesterfield

Chris Wilder was left cursing missed chances as his side were beaten at the death at Chesterfield on Saturday. Goals in injury time in both halves gave the Spireites a 2-1 win after Johnny Mullins’ first minute goal for the U’s leaving the Manager looking for his side to bounce back at Barnet tomorrow night.

“I thought in the first half we were dominant” Chris told Yellow Player after the game.” They got an equaliser close to 50 minutes, which I don’t know where the ref got those minutes from, and I think we should have had four penalties in the last two games as well. Credit to Chesterfield, I’d imagine they would have been wondering how we weren’t out of sight but they had to come at us. I still thought we were comfortable. We made positive substitutions in terms of going to get a result and I still thought we were in the game.

“We came away pointless from a game where we have had big periods of the play. Point taken that we should have defended the corner at the end of the first half better, and point taken that we should have taken our chances in our dominant half hour when it was all us. We worked extremely hard and I think at least a point was deserved. But at the end of the day we should have got at least a point. We have to dig in and get a result on Tuesday.

“I’m not shying away from the fact that our position isn’t good enough, and we have got to affect that. We believe in the process of what we’re doing, and I didn’t think we looked like a team struggling for confidence and form, but it’s another game where things have not gone for us. 

“We have to look at ourselves first and foremost and then try and put that right for Tuesday again.”
