Football - Cook keeps Spireites grounded

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook said he was not getting carried away after watching his side return to the top of Sky Bet League Two with a 2-0 win at Exeter.

Ollie Banks set the Spireites on their way by heading in from a corner just two minutes after half-time and Marc Richards crowned the win with a fine second.

"It was all about winning and I'm so delighted that we are top of the league," Cook said.

"We pushed Exeter really hard in the second half and had that little bit of quality in the final third.

"It is nice to put pressure on the clubs around us, but we are only 21 games in and no-one is getting carried away.

"We have got great players at this club, but we are not going to win every game.

"But we can go into Christmas looking forward to two home games and confident we can build on this result.

"We were top a few weeks ago, we fell away a little bit in terms of where we are, but we are back at the top again.

"When you are top it is a great occasion, but it is only 21 games in and no-one is getting carried away.

"I am pleased for our team, we have great players at the club but we are not going to win every game. Chelsea don't win every game, we seem to get more criticism than any team around us when we get beaten.

"Exeter didn't really create many chances and we saw it out well."
