NEW boss Paul Cook described Chesterfield’s league position as “not good enough” as he reflected on the 3-2 defeat at Bristol Rovers.

He said: “To play for this club in this league, you’ve got a huge responsibility to win football matches and conduct yourself properly. At the minute, we’re in a league position that isn’t good enough and it is only us that can change that.”

Cook hopes some of his injured players will be challenging for places in Saturday’s home game against Oxford United, who sit one place a point ahead of the Spireites.

There’s a chance keeper Tommy Lee, defender Liam Cooper, winger Luis Boa Morte and striker Marc Richards could all be available,

Recognising the part that new face Brennan Dickinson played, scoring just four minutes after coming off the bench for his debut, Cook added: “Brennan’s got a lot of energy and a strong left foot.

“It was his first game in the league and his goal was fantastic, but we win together and we lose together.”

David Dowson was a rapid scorer too, also making his mark just four minutes into his debut appearance.
