Chesterfield 1 Millwall 2, League One, Game 27, 23,1,16, att 7,078 (854 on the road)



According to the Yorkshire Star Chesterfield were the better side but Millwall were the better finishers. I suppose that happens a lot in football and it proves that goals are the key to success. I think we are spoilt by having three strikers and we don't know it. We moan and groan as at the Oxford game and a few choice words for the team and some individuals but we are winning more that we are losing  so we may not have been the better side for this game but we are the better team. We move into the last play-off spot winning our 4th league game out of five and it's nice to look up instead of looking down.  It looks like Shane Ferguson has played his last game for us as his loan period ended when he left the pitch today. There is something in the pipeline and we may resign him on a permanent deal and secure him from his club Newcastle United where he has very little chance of getting a game. I think he fits in with the side and offers hard work and has a good football brain. Hope he stays.
Another northern win
A top win at our first visit to Chesterfield's new ground which is yet another ground that has a non football related heritage and never will with a name Proact Stadium, talk about selling your soul.
