Lavery off the mark

9 February 2015

  • Caolan Lavery scored on Saturday
  • Vital strike for Chesterfield
  • Canadian on loan until March

Owls striker Caolan Lavery is off the mark at loan club Chesterfield having earned a slice of luck at Notts County on Saturday.

Lavery’s tenacity in chasing down County defender Haydn Hollis paid dividends as the latter’s attempted clearance deflected off the striker from long range and into the back of the net.

The goal was enough to give the Spireites all three points in the Midlands.

Lavery said: "The gaffer told me at half time to keep working hard and you'll get your chance and luckily the defender's cleared it off me, it's just bounced off me and luckily it went in, so a good start.

"Chasing lost causes, that's what my game's all about - putting defenders under pressure and hopefully I get the bounce and this time I did."

The Canadian was also pleased to get some important game time under the belt, which was the purpose of Stuart Gray sanctioning the switch on transfer deadline day.

Lavery added: "I feel not too bad. That's my first league game in a while now, so I wasn't going to be as fit as I could be but I think with the more games I play the better I'm going to feel.”
