Have your say

CARETAKER Chesterfield boss Tommy Wright has branded their second-half showing at Morecambe as “not good enough”.

After controlling the game without scoring until injury time at the end of the first period, Chesterfield then conceded a sucker punch, quickly followed by another seven minutes after the re-start from Lewis Alessandra.

“First half we played well, we had three or four real good chances but we gave a goal away just before half-time. In the second half, it was not good enough,” he said. “We were second best all over the park, it was a real game of two halves.

“We should have been leading at half-time but credit to Morecambe, as they were by far the better team overall. You’ve got to take your chances at this level, the first goal is all important and after they scored it we looked like second best.”
