The Spireites' first defeat of pre-season on Friday came thanks to a well-taken finish from Nathan Arnold just before half-time and a winner by an Alfreton trialist, who punished a poor clearance from substitute goalkeeper Richard O'Donnell.

Danny Whitaker had put Sheridan's side back on level terms in the second half but the home side took the spoils despite the League Two outfit creating the better chances.

Sheridan told Spireites Player: "Just like at Telford we created a lot of chances.
