John Pemberton has praised his central midfield pair Curtis Weston and Jonathan Smith for their impressive performances.

Weston has chipped in with six goals so far this season including two in the last two games.

The 33-year-old bagged a memorable injury-time winner against Wrexham and got on the scoresheet in the victory over Ebbsfleet United on Saturday.

While his teammate Smith has scored four goals this campaign but three of those came in the first three matches under Pemberton.

Smith, who like Weston is also 33, struck the only goal of the game in Pemberton’s first match in charge against Sutton United and then added strikes against Eastleigh and AFC Fylde.

Pemberton said: "I think he (Weston) has been great in all of the games.

"Him and Smith together have been solid.

"Smith weighed in with a few goals early doors.

“He (Weston) is now weighing in.

"Them two defended really well (against Ebbsfleet) and it gives us a good platform."

Meanwhile, with no match this Saturday due to Harrogate Town’s involvement in the FA Trophy, the Spireites have arranged a game behind closed doors on Thursday.

"We are just trying to keep rolling and get the lads who have not been playing some playing time and a couple of the lads who have been injured,” Pemberton added. “It gives me a good chance to see everyone.”
