Sheridan praises strikers Denton and Boden

Chesterfield boss John Sheridan says he's been pleased with the individual threats posed by strikers Tom Denton and Scott Boden.

Boden scored his first goals from open play since making his return to the club on Tuesday evening in the Spireites' 3-1 win over Braintree.

Sheridan told us he has the potential to be the best goalscorer in the national league: "He'll say himself that he's not playing great, but he's always got goals in him. In and around the penalty area he'll be one of the best in the league."

Meanwhile, Tom Denton, who just a few weeks ago looked to be kept out of the side by Marc-Antoine Fortune has turned provider on several occasions, recently providing assists in the away games at Barnet and Braintree. 

Sheridan said: "He can effect games. He's done it in patches when he's come on in games, he's had chances and he's set goals up. He's not someone who's going to run in behind, he's not going to dominate the ball when it goes up there. It is when he's aerial becuase he's a handful on his day.

"It's important you play to his strengths, we've got to know what hes good at and if we can play to his strengths he's a big threat."

The Spireites are looking to further extend the gap between themselves and the relegation places this weekend when they take on play-off chasers Eastleigh at the Proact Stadium.
