Sheridan upbeat going into Tuesday's trip to Braintree

Chesterfield manager John Sherdian is remaining upbeat about how his side are progressing, despite defeat at top of the table Wrexham at the weekend.

The Spireites boss told Peak FM: "I don't think it was a great game. I thought we were comfortable and nullified them. It's down to us again. The biggest downer was the goal for me.

"Just how we concede a goal in that manner when we've looked solid and nullified them to nothing, but unfortunately you will get that. In other games we've got away with that but we didn't get away with it on Saturday.

"We need to be solid, we need to be organised. When we're attacking we need to be aware of danger but I thought we looked solid and organised again.

"The good thing about a Tuesday game after a defeat is that you can rectify it and you can get Wrexham out of the way by going and getting a win at Braintree."

On tomorrow evening's opponents Sheridan said: "They'll still believe there's enough points to go for to stay in the division. Only a couple of weeks ago they beat Salford at home so I'm not taking them lightly whatsoever. I know they're bottom of the league but it's a tough game. It's a Tuesday night, I'm not expecting the pitch to be great.

"We've just got to think of ourselves and just carry on what we've been doing really. Its probably the biggest game for me since I've been here because if we can win the game it takes us seven points clear from the bottom four.
