Spireites slump to 2-0 defeat at Stockport

They're now joint-bottom of the National League.

Chesterfield remain without a win in the 2019/20 campaign following yesterday's 2-0 loss at Stockport County.

Despite a promising first half, second half strikes by Elliot Osborne and Nyal Bell mean the Spireites have picked up just four points from their opening seven fixtures this season.

The bank holiday Monday loss leaves John Sheridan's men twenty-second in the fifth tier of English football.

Speaking afterwards, Chesterfield Manager Sheridan admitted he's been surprised by his side's poor start to the campaign;

"It's nowhere near good enough. I never ever expected this.

"I've got to take what's thrown at me, I've got to try and be strong. 

"I totally understand why the fans are frustrated, but I've just got to believe and push on to get the results we need, quickly.

"I thought we were in control of the first half, but we aren't clinical enough right now.

"In the second period we became untidy and sloppy, and to concede fifteen seconds into the half is unfair on our fans."

The Spireites will look to secure their first victory of the season against Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday at the Proact Stadium.
