Spireites' boss Allen: "Supporters are bound to be disappointed"

Chesterfield manager Martin Allen admits he expects fans to be disappointed by the club's current league position.

The Spireites dropped into the National League relegation zone last weekend, despite battling to a point away at in-form Eastleigh.

Jordan Hallam scored on his debut in a 1-1 draw after coming to the Proact on-loan from Sheffield United.

Martin Allen said: "He doesn't shoot, he finishes. There's a big difference. You get that chance and like on Saturday, it goes in the bottom corner and the goalkeeper doesn't have a chance. That's finishing."

The Spireites take on Bromley at the Proact Stadium tomorrow evening and Allen is expecting another tough game: "Every game is difficult in this division. I've said it since day one.

"I know them very well, I know all their players, I know their manager really well. As a player I worked with him, I've tried to employ him a couple of times, he's a top bloke. As I've said we need to be right on our game and we need to have a little bit more."

Allen also addressed the concerns of the supporters regarding the club's league position: "I'd share their same concern. I'm not mad! I don't look at league tables but of course the reporters told me our league position.

"Supporters are bound to be disappointed, upset and worried. I fully understand that and there's no argument against that."
