After suffering an opening day defeat to Dover, Sheridan expressed his dismay in his post-match interview.
The Chesterfield boss felt his side “didn’t get going” in the first half.
“I feel sorry for the fans. I don’t want it to be like the last few years here. I get so frustrated at times when I’m watching,” he said.
“They were never in the game second half and they’ve ended up going home with three points”
He felt his side “played well in patches” but “you've gotta dominate a game for longer periods.”
Sheridan sees game management as a key aspect and this level and felt that some of the absences hindered the Spireites.
He said: “If Gerrard was playing we wouldn’t have lost the game. He would have been rollocking everyone in and around him, that’s why”
Sheridan has spoken about the addition of a few new faces to his side and is “waiting for the other clubs to come back to him”. He is hoping to get those players in soon.
The Spireites have a chance to bounce back from this opening day defeat down at Maidenhead on Tuesday.
“I'd have liked to go to Maidenhead with three points. The most important thing is that we are in the position we want to be in at the end of the season,” Sheridan said.
