Sheridan: We'll learn from it
Chesterfield manager John Sheridan believes his players will learn from the experience of their Carling Cup defeat to Middlesbrough.First-half goals from Scott McDonald and Julio Arca put the Championship club in control but the Spireites set up an exciting finale when Dwayne Mattis pulled a goal back midway through the second half."We have played a very good side who have brought a lot of quality in and I like playing against good opposition and hopefully we will learn, especially the younger players who will see why they are playing at a higher level, the way they move the ball and create angles," said Sheridan."I thought we just stood off them and gave them too much respect in the first half but I was really pleased with our efforts in the second half and we had a right go but we just didn't get that break."The second half we played it like a cup tie and got in their faces, we raised the tempo but unfortunately we gave ourselves a bit too much to do. I think we matched them second half."I was very pleased with the response I got from the players in the second half, we were excellent and we had some good opportunities."
