Paul Cook was impressed by how well Joe Quigley led the line for Chesterfield at Borehamwood.

“It was his best game for Chesterfield. He led the line fantastically well and was a constant threat.

“He just needed to cap it off with a goal, but I’m sure that’s on the way.

“Strikers go through these spells and he’s only just joined us. It is tough leading the line on your own, he did ever so well today.”

Cook also praised the performance of shot-stopper Scott Loach and explained why goalscorer Akwasi Asante was left on the bench.

“Akwasi has been feeling a bit fatigued and tired,” said Cook. “He missed two days training at the latter end of the week with sickness.

“We felt it was best to come off the bench today, he will be a big player for us.

“Scott is having a fantastic season with us, along with a lot of other players.

“He's an outstanding goalkeeper. We all travel home slightly disappointed, but we lick our wounds and go again.”
