Chesterfield Paper Review

17 November 2014

What the press made of the home stalemate with the Spireites

The Sentinel
CREWE moved off the bottom of League One after a second successive 0-0 draw at Gresty Road.
Both sides had their chances to score in what a fiercely competitive game, but neither had the clinical touch to break the deadlock.
Steve Davis made three changes to his Crewe side for the visit of Chesterfield as Brad Inman, Febian Brandy and Danny Haynes all returned in a new-look front three. Marcus Haber was away on international duty whilst George Cooper and Chris Atkinson dropped to the bench.

The Chronicle
CREWE Alex were held to a goalless draw at Gresty Road for a second consecutive Saturday.
A week after their 0-0 tie with Sheffield United in the FA Cup they were frustrated by Chesterfield in League One.
The result has lifted the Railwaymen off the foot of the division and their hugely improved defensive record is a real positive.
But concerns remain about their ability to score the goals they need to beat the drop remain as Spireites keeper Tommy Lee had a quiet afternoon.
Crewe have now kept four clean sheets in their last six, and not lost a goal in the first half of any of the last seven.
But they have also only found the net five times in the last 10 and manager Steve Davis must address that swiftly.

The Chesterfield Post
It was a return to the league programme for the Spireites after their stunning win against Braintree in the FA Cup first round and, perhaps mindful of that performance, Paul Cook named an unchanged side to take on Crewe Alexandra.
However, despite an excellent performance, theRailwaymen held Cook's men to a goalless draw atGresty Road in front of 844 travelling fans.
