Both managers had their say after the Southend United v Chesterfield clash bought about a 3-2 win for the league leaders Sturrock: Blues boss Paul Sturrock was so upset about the manner of his side's fifth home defeat of the season he wants to change the teams name!Sturrock told www.southendunited.co.uk: "I'm very disappointed and think we should call ourselves 'Southend shoot ourselves in the foot United'. So far this season we have kicked ourselves in the teeth so many times with zany goals. The first was stupid, the second was poor defending and the third was hard to believe, altough I will have to look at the penalties again.'Not sure the new name would fit on the pools coupon Luggs, and as for the spot-kicks, thay all looked fair, and, yes, stupid.Luggy continued: "After the previous game I emphasised to the players about clearing their lines and two of their goals we lose again are stock clearances. You cannot give a quality side like Chesterfield a two gaol lead, but we showed a bit of bite in the second half. To the lads' credit, there is a pride about them and anyone coming in for the second half would not have known who was the top team and which was in the middle of the road team. I'm looking to freshen things up during January but it's not about knee-jerk reactions." Sheridan: Meanwhile, Chesterfield boss John Sheridan was a happy Spireite after his side's first win at Roots Hall since a 2-0 win in April 1998, and a victory that took the Sheridan told www.chesterfield-fc.co.uk: ""I knew it was going to be a hard game. We are going to play poorly at times; the other day we didn't play well and got a draw but it was a good performance," said Sheridan, after the Spireites got their first win at Roots Hall since a 2-0 victory in April 1998. "We were very comfortable to get a 2-0 lead, although I'm disappointed with the goals we conceded because it gave them a bit of belief, but fortunately we got a penalty and got back into a two-goal lead. "We caused them problems with the way we played and they had to change things to cope with it. I changed the system to brighten things up and we looked a good team who are top of the league for a good reason."
