But Weir admits there are no certainties in football.

Dennis is the subject of interest from League One Bradford City, thanks to the 15 goals he’s scored this season for the Spireites.

Weir isn’t surprised by the attention paid to the striker because he and the rest of Dennis’ team-mates value his contribution.

“He’s scored some very important goals for us, he’s our top scorer,” said the Northern Irishman.

“He’s a great player, he’s been up top on his own and works his socks off.”

“You never know in football, if he stays or goes, but I think all the lads in the dressing room would be pleased if he stayed because he scores a lot of goals for us.

“Football is football, we’ve been in it long enough now, you never know what can happen.”

Under the management of Jack Lester, Dennis has scored nine goals in 21 outings.

And Weir believes the frontman has got better in that time.

“Since the gaffer came in he’s improved his game,” he added.
