Players deserve great credit - Chesterfield boss Paul Cook

20 April 2015

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook was full of praise for his team's efforts after a 0-0 draw at Oldham Athletic moved the Spireites closer to booking a Sky Bet League 1 Play-Off spot.

Cook's side can only miss out on a top-six finish if they lose their final two games and seventh-placed Rochdale end the season with three consecutive wins.

He said: "There was never going to be a goal unless there was a bit of magic, but it's a good away point for us.

"Only Rochdale can catch us now and we know they have to win all of their last three games.

"It was apparent from the first ball that it wasn't going to be a game of football today.

"That's no disrespect to Oldham because they like to pass the ball around as well, but the conditions made it difficult and it wasn't a good spectacle.

"Neither team did enough to win, but we shake hands on it and look ahead to our next game when hopefully there will be a carnival atmosphere if everything goes well.

"For us to be in the Play-Off area with two games left is fantastic and the players deserve great credit. I'm delighted for everybody at the club."
