Abu Ogogo handed the Spireites the points and Burnett reflected on a hectic few days in charge since taking over from John Still, who switched to Luton on Monday.

Burnett said: "It's been a big step up for me but it's been great to have been given the opportunity.

"Time will tell how things work out, but I came here five years ago thinking I could potentially end up in this position.

"So far I've seen good signs, despite only picking up the one point from two games.

"I took some good advice from a number of people in the game before I did step in, and I think I am ready to do this now.

"I already knew that no games in our division are easy, but this group of players is capable of so much.

"We'll just keep going and try and win as many games as possible between now and May.

"I'm not one for setting targets, but if we get points on the board then who knows where it may take us."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
