Chesterfield manager John Sheridan was delighted after his side booked a place at Wembley after beating Oldham in the JPT.

The Spireites entered the game a goal up after winning the first leg 2-1 and despite Oldham being the better side in last night`s return leg, Chesterfield won the game 1-0 to make it 3-1 on aggregate.

Oldham will now meet either Swindon or Barnet at Wembley at the end of March.

i>’It’s brilliant for everyone involved with the club,’ said Sheridan.

‘Obviously we’ll be trying to win the final, but I’ve told the lads to enjoy the occasion because getting to any Wembley final is a great achievement.

‘We worked our socks off against a very good Oldham side who we knew would create chances. They put us under pressure, but we defended, blocked shots and were always dangerous on the break.

‘I’m really proud of all the players because our league form has improved after a poor run and we’ve carried that into the cups. Our league position still isn’t good, but over the last seven or eight games the lads have been showing character and belief.’
