Wright questions penalty decision

Jack Lester appeared to have a shot blocked by the arm of

Millers skipper Ian Sharps as the Spireites pushed for a winning

goal late on.

“I thought we had a definite penalty at the end,” said Wright.

“I would like to see it again but my first thought was the lad

blocked it on the line with his arm in the air.

“It was a typical derby game and I thought overall it was a fair

result. Rotherham are a good side and they put us under a bit of

pressure at times but for the last 20 minutes I thought Jordan

Bowery started to get the better of them in the air and

physically.

“We are disappointed (with Rotherham’s goal). We thought Sam

(Hird) got a bit too tight to Odejayi, who is a strong and powerful

lad, and once he got into his stride I don’t think anyone was going

to get at him and he finished it well. But Sam knows he got too

tight and I’m sure it won’t happen again.”

Jordan Bowery gave Chesterfield an early lead but Rotherham hit

back and deservedly drew level in the 51st minute through Kayode

Odejayi.
