Chesterfield have confirmed that caretaker manager John Pemberton will remain in charge for the rest of the season.

After 34 games, they remain in the drop zone, one point from safety. Chesterfield have taken ten points from a possible 15 since Pemberton’s arrival.
Company secretary Ashley Carson said in an official statement: “John has done a good job in difficult circumstances and he, together with his staff, deserves much credit. After helping out on a temporary basis, we felt that John deserved to be given the job until the end of the season.
“We are delighted to have secured John’s services for the crucial remaining few months of the campaign as his knowledge and experience will be vital.”
