Manager Lee Bradbury was quoted after the defeat as saying: "For long periods of the game we had possession of the ball, passed the ball well, but lacked a bit in the final third today. It took a great goal to open us up though, and we gave it a good go in the last 25 minutes. We didn't have a many chances as we usually do, and credit to them for that. They got in our faces and made it difficult for us to play. Even though they did, I felt we were calm on the ball... we did cause them a few problems, but not too many in front of goal. Chesterfield didn't show they were bottom of the table tonight, they worked very hard for each other tonight, and if they play like that most weeks, then they'll be alright".
