Why Chesterfield must gamble on this striker to take them back to League One



Chesterfield fans will be pleased that the 2016/17 season is over.

After just nine wins in 46 league games, Chesterfield finished bottom of the pile in League One and were relegated to the fourth tier of English football.

The Spireites will be keen to bounce straight back to the third tier at the first time of asking.

In order to achieve this, manager Gary Caldwell is going to have to strengthen their squad.

Chesterfield were very poor in League One and need to bolster their squad to compete at the top end of League Two.

League Two is a tough division to get out of and Caldwell needs a mixture of hungry youth players, experience, physical and technical players – they need players with a point to prove.

Chesterfield also need a goal scorer now that Ched Evans has gone to Sheffield United.

One man that they could target is Connor Jennings.

Jennings fits the bill as someone with a point to prove.

He is currently playing for Tranmere Rovers as a striker or a second striker.

However, he might be tempted to leave the National League side after they lost in the play-off final against Forest Green Rovers.

With Tranmere set for another season in non-league, the 25-year-old might jump up to League Two to make a wise career move at this vital stage of his footballing life.

With 8 goals in 30 appearances this season, Jennings could certainly step up.

With some decent service and some confidence, the former Scunthorpe and Wrexham marksman could score plenty of goals in the Football League.

Chesterfield fans – would you like to sign Jennings? Let us know below…
