Cook craves cutting edge

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook admitted his side are suffering from a lack of cutting edge after drawing 1-1 with AFC Wimbledon.

George Francomb's first league goal for the Dons put the hosts ahead after 50 minutes but Ollie Banks struck his eighth goal of the season shortly afterwards to keep the Spireites top of League Two, despite extending their winless run to three games.

"If you watch us regularly the biggest criticism you'd have is that cutting edge," said Cook. "That's been the same all season and it will continue to be until the season ends.

"To have a cutting edge and be good defensively you have to be some side. We concentrate on passing the ball and trying to retain the ball and I think we're quite good at it.

"AFC Wimbledon worked very hard. You see the effort they put in, they won't have any problems. I'm sure they'll grow and get stronger and stronger.

"It was a great goal by Ollie Banks but I didn't think we deserved to be one-down. I didn't think Wimbledon offered us many threats against in the second half, and that's not being disrespectful. It was more a case of would we score again but we never did. We're now looking forward to a big end to the season."
