Chesterfield boss Jack Lester feels his side are close to going on a much-needed run of results.

The struggling Spireites remain rooted to the bottom of the Football League after a 2-1 defeat at Cambridge United.

Lester’s outfit were bidding for back-to-back league wins for the first time since last November and despite a better performance they still could not grab the three points.

He said: “I think we’re quite close to stringing a number of results together and I look forward to that.

“We’re working with what we’ve got, we’re sticking together and we should have won the game.

“The performance was good and you should be winning the game when you dominate the ball like that.

“We’re getting better. We probably should have taken nine points from our last three games, but we haven’t.

“That’s indicative of the position we’re in, the nerves and the edginess.”

Kristian Dennis grabbed the Spireites’ goal, his ninth of a fruitful campaign so far.

And Lester believes the Chesterfield fans have not seen the best of their talisman so far.

Lester added: “I don’t think we’ve seen the best of him either.

“With the work we’re going to be doing with him he’s going to get sharper, fitter, I can only see him improving.

“It’s not easy to get chances and the next best thing to not scoring is getting chances because your movement, anticipation and awareness is there.

“I love the fact he’s getting lots of chances.”
