Martin Allen bemoaned the individual errors that cost his side so dearly at home to Maidenhead United, report the Derbyshire Times.

The under-fire Chesterfield boss, who came in for flak from sections of the Proact crowd during the game, says he understands why fans are losing patience after a 10-game winless streak.

He admitted that after 13 games of the National League season he still doesn’t know his best side and that it wasn’t too early to say Town were in a relegation battle. Speaking after the 3-1 defeat that left the Spireites above the drop zone only by goal difference, Allen said the effort was there from his players but mistakes cost them the game.

“Very disappointing result,” he said. “Performance wise I thought we played much, much better than Saturday. “Individual errors at key points have cost us dear.

“(The first one) I thought there clearly was a handball but we still should have defended that better. The second one poor defending cost us that one.”
