Chesterfield manager Paul Cook thanked many of the clubs geographically close to the Proact after landing 17 year old Mason Bennett on loan from Derby County.

He said: “We’ve got to thank Derby for letting us take Mason. Other clubs around us, Sheffield United have helped us, so have Barnsley with Jordan Clark last season. We must have a good relationship with them because one day we want to swim with them; that’s the important thing, we never lose sight of where we want to go.”

Bennett is likely to be on the bench for this afternoon’s game at home to Oxford United alongside Daniel Kearns who signed on loan from Peterborough on Tuesday.

Cook (below), pleased with the performance in the 1-1 midweek draw at Wimbledon but frustrated with the result, commented: “We should work harder at being a good team that passes the ball well and moves it quicker.

“If you move the ball quicker and isolate weakness you eventually hurt people. One criticism is that we sometimes don’t move it quick enough and we don’t isolate weakness. To set up to make it hard to beat is a lot easier than setting up to be open and expansive and we want to be open and expansive.”
