Jackett: We must do better

Jackett: We must do better

Chesterfield scored 4 goals past high flyers Huddersfield last Saturday and we know we'll have to make a big improvement if we want to get back to winning ways after failing to do so in our last 3 games.

'We have to get on the front foot again,' Jackett declared.

'We are waiting for things to happen at the moment rather than making them happen and that has to change.

'We're not challenging teams enough. I've watched the Rotherham video a number of times and instead of getting at them we sat off them.

'Now and again that happens in games and sometimes you have to hold your hands up and say the other team was better.

'But I haven't felt that was the case in the last three games. We just haven't challenged sides enough.'

Kenny Jackett also mentioned Stevenage's Goerge Boyd again and says there has been no bid from the Swans: 'He's one of a number of players we've watched but we've made no inquiry or bid.'

'Stevenage have a chance of promotion this year and they will want to keep their best players, so I think it would take a big offer to get Boyd out.

'He is an out-and-out left-winger and I already have two of those in Kevin McLeod and Marc Goodfellow, as well as Andy Robinson who can play there.

'It's not as if we desperately need to bring somebody in to cover that position.'
