Richardson under pressure

13 Dec 2008 - 14:26:24

Chesterfield manager Lee Richardson was upset by the crowd's reaction to Friday's 4-2 home defeat to Macclesfield Town.

The Spireites are languishing in the bottom half of the League Two table after being one of the pre-season favourites for promotion and the home fans called for Richardson's axing after the latest setback.

Richardson admitted he had got the team selection wrong for the game, but added: "I don't think the fans booing helps and it transmits to the team and some of the new players don't understand why it's so venomous.

"The chairman has already spoken to me and he isn't very happy as none of us are.

"Once again we've given ourselves a proverbial mountain to climb by conceding two very soft goals.

"We just seem to commit suicide. We have given them four Christmas presents."
