Very difficult now - Sheridan
Chesterfield manager John Sheridan knows his side have their work cut out if they are to remain in League One.
A 4-1 defeat to local rivals Sheffield United leaves the Spireites bottom of the table and nine points adrift of safety with seven matches remaining. Sheridan, whose side lifted the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley on Sunday, was disappointed that his players failed to build on their promising first-half performance at Bramall Lane. "I was very pleased with how we played in the first-half. I thought in the first-half we were really in the game and my team talk at half-time was very positive. I told them they could even go on and win it," said Sheridan. "The first three goals were very poor. The penalty is a disgrace on our part. I don't know what it was all about. It was a comedy of errors and it gave them a lift. "Players just do not realise what information you're trying to give them. That's why some of the players are playing at this level. "We've got to go on our best run of the season now. All the teams are fighting for their lives. It's going to be very, very difficult but we've got to try our hardest."
