After 2 wins in a row the Spireites were looking to make it 3, has they travelled to Torquay. Only one change was made from the side that won at Kassam Stadium Drew Talbot coming in for the injured Nathan Smith.
The Spireites were hoping for a dream start against a struggling Torquay side instead they endured a nightmare first 8 minutes. 2 minutes into the game an unmarked Labadie headed home a cross from Thomas Cruise. The Spireites had been caught cold by a team fighting for their league status. After 8 minutes they were 2 down after Rene Howe's effort went in off the post.
Although the Spireites tried to fight back it wasn't until the 77th minute when Cooper glanced a header past Poke after a brilliant cross from Randall. In the end they couldn't find the equaliser they desperately needed.
It was always going to be a tall order to make the play-offs and having won their last 2 if they won their next 2 it would put them in with a shout. It was always going to difficult to make the Play-offs this season but it would have been a bonus if we had have done. It's all about building a team for next season.
Cook talking to the official site said:'our game plan was out of window. We knew Torquay would be fighting for their lives, we had them watched at Southend on Saturday they played really well. Unfortunately for us, we didn't start the game in any shape or form and we were second best for long periods and we ended up going 2-0 down.'
The defence as been brilliant in the last couple of month with Cooper and Trotman forming a solid defensive partnership. The 2nd best defence in League 2 behind Gillingham the league leaders proves that Cook has built a solid defence. They say good manages start from the back and Cook has certainly done that.
Cook goes onto say:'We're sick we really are. By the time we licked our wounds, it's seven wins will get you there but I think you have to be a little more realistic than that. We've got to make sure we keep going and lift everyone's spirits because when clubs are flat and ours will be, it's important we look to a brighter future.
Cook is already looking to build a team to challenge for honours next season. It should be an interesting Summer to see who he keeps and who he brings in.
