Manager Paul Cook is pleased with the way his Chesterfield side have shared the goals around the team this season.

Some Spireites supporters have been critical of Cook for not signing a prolific goal scorer but the club head into the final game of the season against Fleetwood on Saturday already assured of automatic promotion and top of the table courtesy of a superior goal difference.

Victory will see Chesterfield go up as champions. A draw would also see them clinch the title if Rochdale, who are currently level on points with the Spireites, were also held and Scunthorpe failed to win.

Cook quipped that winning the league on goal difference would be one in the eye for the detractors.

"Funnily enough we could win the league on goal difference, which isn't bad considering we need a striker," said the Blues boss.

"I would quite like to win the league on goal difference because we need a striker, according to some people.

"Some of the criticism this season has been a little close to the bone considering this team has only been out of the top-four twice this season the Monday after a weekend game.

"I think it is good that we share the goals around. We have Gary Roberts and Eoin Doyle who have scored more than 10 goals each and we have Marc Richards, Ollie Banks and Jay O'Shea who are either oner or two goals away from 10, so to have five players nearly hitting double figures is positive."
