Assistant-manager reflects on victory

Following the 4-1 victory over King’s Lynn Town, assistant-manager George Foster gave his thoughts on the performance and whether he thought the game was in doubt due to the adverse weather conditions.

He said: “I thought the second half, we looked more like ourselves. I thought we dominated and some of our football was what we are.

“I was beginning to panic a bit with the hail and the rain because if the ball doesn’t move, what will the referee do?

“The reason I’m here is because [James Rowe] is in there now preparing for Wealdstone. This game is out of the way now, we are preparing for the next one.”

Adi Yussuf returned to the starting line-up and was on the scoresheet; Foster was very pleased with the striker’s performance.

“He scored his goal. When players are out of the side, obviously they are unhappy if they are not in the team,” Foster said.”

“But we’ve got a brilliant squad here. I think it shows when someone like Adi comes in and he scores a goal. I’m really pleased for him.”

The Spireites have three games to secure a place in the National League play-offs and Foster believes that they need to take it one game at a time.

“We are there at the moment, he said. “If we win our next three games, we’re there. But it is one game at a time.

“We have done our job tonight. It’s Wealdstone on Saturday and we won’t take them for granted. We will show them the respect we have shown everybody.”
