John Sheridan

Chesterfield owner Dave Allen says manager John Sheridan's job is safe even if they are relegated this season.

Sheridan led the Spireites to victory in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Swindon on Sunday, but the club are currently bottom of League One.

Allen told BBC Radio Sheffield: "I'm not for sacking managers, there's lots of teams that have sacked their managers and have not done any better.

"I'm a great believer in business that if you've got the right man back him."

He added: "John's a good manager and a great coach, we've had a bit of a hiccup this year but he's a sensible guy.

"Let's hope this victory gives us some impetus and we can start getting a few wins and get out of it."
