The 31-year-old had been training with the club following his departure from Sky Bet League One side Coventry.

If McSheffrey's short-term spell is a success the Spireites could extend his contract until the end of the season.

McSheffrey told the club's official website: "I could have just seen out my contract at Coventry and picked up my wages every month but the manager here has given me the opportunity to play football. I plan on taking the opportunity with both hands.

"The squad is very impressive and there's a good feeling about the place. The manager has a philosophy of total soccer and the lads play some good football. It's a club that's only going one way.

"It's good for both parties because it gives me an opportunity to start playing again and the club can take a good look at me over the next few months. There's a strong possibility that it could be turned into a permanent arrangement."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
