Town boss Nathan felt his side should have won by a clearer margin today as they made it three wins on the trot with a 1-0 victory over Chesterfield at Kenilworth Road this afternoon.

Danny Hylton netted his second goal of the season and the only one of the afternoon as he got on the end of Jordan Cook's superb ball to slot home and give his side the win.

Jones said: "If we had been more clinical we would have been out of sight, let's make no bones about it.

"Guy Branston has set his team out and you can see what he's trying to do. He has obviously worked with them and credit to him because they were a difficult team to play against.

"But we have had clear cut chances – not half chances. We have had 19 chances today and a lot of them were clear cut. James Collins has probably had four or five, ones that I would not envisage him missing on another day.

"Pelly has missed a point-blank header in the first half that he has somehow put wide. Harry Cornick has had one on the counter-attack. We should have been out of sight.

"It was a difficult game though and we showed a different side to us because we had to dig in, and apart from straight after the goal where they created a good chance second half, we managed to keep them to minimum opportunities."

He continued: "That's a game we would have drawn last year. Not when we went down to ten men, because we saw games out when we had 10 men, we are good at that.

"What we would have done last year is conceded earlier on. We would have been a bit sloppy, we wouldn't have shown as much quality and that's what didn't happen today and I am pleased. I don't want to be disrespectful, but we had enough chances to win that game by far more."
