Chesterfield manager John Sheridan says he'll be having 'difficult' conversations with a number of out-of-contract players next week
The Spireites travel to Maidenhead in their final match of the season after a remarkable turnaround which has seen them move from the relegation places in January, up to a potential top half finish.
Sheridan said: "I'm pleased that we've finished strong at home because it's good for the supporters after all the support they've given us throughout the season.
"I've thanked the players, they've been absolutley brilliant, every one of them. Ones who haven't been in the team. And it can be little things that I like in people. Nearly every one of them come up and shake your hand and wish you good luck before the game and well done after the game. They don't have to do that."
"The character of some of them has been spot on because they've played a part even though they've not been on the pitch. They've trained properly and have been different class with their attitude."
However the manager said discussions will take place next week on the futures of several players once the season is over.
"It doesn't matter whether you're old or young. It's something you don't want to hear but you've just got to get on with it and whatever the future holds it's all going to be good for everyone."
