did i really think we would keep winning?

On Saturday the bubble burst. Following 5 consecutive home wins, Chesterfield dropped two points, letting Blackpool get a draw out of a rather scrappy match.

Initially we had made it look very easy, Sammy Clingan firing home from a free kick early on, but then our captain, Shane Nicholson, set a wonderful example for the rest of the team by gettring himself sent off. Seems the referee didn't approve of him punching someone. Funny that.

Admittedly the recipient of the punch was dimissed as well, he had provoked Nicholson by kicking him when he was on the floor, but the match ended up being a disappointing affair. One all the final score.

Not to worry, we're still fifth in the league.
