BOSS John Sheridan has blasted Dean Morgan, one of the players he has released after Chesterfield’s relegation.

“He’s got a bad attitude,” said Sheridan. “I spoke to him one on one many times about what he needed to do for the team but he doesn’t help himself.

“If he doesn’t step things up he’ll struggle to find another club.”

Sheridan has given recognition to Sheffield United’s play-off opponents, Stevenage.

He said: “I give a lot of credit to Stevenage, they do have a style of their own. They have a way of playing and they bring in players to fit that. I’ll never want to play football their way but they believe in their philosophy.

“I’ll stick to my beliefs but it’s a results-based business. I’ll try and get us back up at the first attempt next season.”

He also paid tribute to Franck Moussa after his loan spell from Nigel Pearson’s Leicester City, though he doesn’t expect to be able to call on him next season.

“He’s been a good, good player for us, he really excelled, but he’s a bit too pricy,” he said.

The Belgian is believed to be on around £4,500 a week and Sheridan added: “He’s got another year left at Leicester and they helped us out salary wise. He’s a player I’d love to have in my squad.”

The Spireites first pre-season friendly has been announced. Derby County will be the visitors to the B2net Stadium ahead of the new season on Saturday August 11, kick-off 3pm.

Admission details will be released in due course.

The Rams held off a late recovery from the Spireites to run out 5-4 winners in Chesterfield’s first ever game held at the B2net Stadium on 24 July 2010 in front of a crowd of 7,550.
