Chesterfield manager Martin Allen was bullish when asked about his side’s promotion ambitions this season.
After much change at the Derbyshire club over the summer, following relegation into the Vanarama National League, the Spireites began the season with an impressive three victories.
However, fortunes have since taken a turn for the worse, to say the least. Town were beaten 1-0 at Boreham Wood on Tuesday night to bring up their sixth loss in a row.
In press conference quotes reported by BBC Radio Sheffield’s Rob Staton, manager Martin Allen responded to a question about Chesterfield’s intentions to challenge for promotion this year in forthright fashion.
The former Brentford boss said: “Course it’s a year to go for bloody promotion. I didn’t come here to p**s around.”
Rob Staton replied: “You’ve lost six games (in a row) though.”
Allen: “So what? I didn’t come here to p**s around and be in mid-table. I came here because I want to be a champion.”
