Gyasi’s game “built around his unpredictability’

A journalist who saw new signing Michael Gyasi in action for his former club, King’s Lynn Town, believes his unpredictability will make him an exciting addition to the squad.

Chris Lakey, head of sport at the Eastern Daily Press, told Spireites fans what they can expect from Gyasi.

Lackey said: “He never really got a good long run of starts, which every player loves. 

“He’s a very difficult player to ‘read’ because a lot of his game is built around his unpredictability. 

“He loves to run at defenders and get them back-pedalling. It frightens defenders because they want to stop him, but it often leads to conceding a foul.

“I don’t think Lynn fans ever got to see the best of Michael Gyasi. Chesterfield fans have that to come but he will definitely benefit from a run of games. 

“I think he proved that when he went Ioan to Dover and did well for them.

“Mustn’t forget that when he did play, he was more than happy to track back and help out his defender – it’s a commitment that was perhaps overlooked but struck me when I saw him. Any defenders will tell you it’s a good asset.”

Gyasi came through the youth system at Leicester Cit but failed to make a first-team appearance for the Foxes.

In 2016, Gyasi made his way into senior football, signing for Nuneaton Town.

Since then, he has had spells at seven clubs, including a stint in Germany with Phonix Lubeck.

His two most recent clubs are King’s Lynn and Dover Athletic, playing for both during the 2021/22 season.

Gyasi made 30 appearances in the National League last season, netting five goals, one of which was at the Technique Stadium. 

He also bagged a hat trick for Dover in a thrilling 6-5 loss to Wrexham in March.
