The Ravens ran out winners at the Technique Stadium on Saturday thanks to goals from Michael Cheek and Joe Kizzi either side of Laurence Maguire’s equaliser.

It got a bit heated on the touchline at times with Spireites boss James Rowe frustrated at being denied two ‘stonewall’ penalties.

Both teams are aiming to get in the play-offs and they will go head-to-head again on April 27.

“We were resolute,” Woodman said.

“I was probably a little disappointed we did not go a few more goals in front in the first-half.

“At this stage of the season it is all about results.

“I don’t want to get carried away because they have got to come to us in a couple of weeks and that will be feisty, I am sure, because it was getting a bit feisty which I quite like to be honest.”

Cheek notched his 18th goal of the season when he finished one-on-one past Grant Smith.

“It is easy to say it now but that is exactly what we have worked on,” Woodman said. “I am not just saying it but we knew that that was how we were probably going to have our best chance to score and I am just disappointed we did not have a few more.”

Maguire levelled for Town and the hosts looked like the team most likely to win it but Woodman’s men hung on and took ful advantage at the other end when Kizzi headed the winner with six minutes to go after beating Maguire in the air at the back post.

Woodman added: “In a weird way this team kind of reacts from setbacks so I was kind of looking forward to the reaction and I said to Kizzi at half-time ‘you have got to believe you are going to score on that back stick’ because he had a couple of chances first-half so I was even more happy that he did that and we had a little chuckle after.”
