Chesterfield FC manager James Rowe has lauded Ghanaian striker Akwasi Asante after scoring a hat-trick for his side in their 6-0 heavy win in the English Conference League on Saturday.
Asante put up an incredible performance as Town remained unbeaten in four matches under manager James Rowe.
The win takes the Blues up to 15th and leaves them just four points off the play-off positions.
Speaking after the game, he said, “We were cut-throat today and that is what we wanted to be. It was a close game in the first half, we probably edged it, in the second half we blew them away. We were ruthless.”
“The way they have taken the game plan onto the pitch I can’t ask anymore.
“Going forward, the second goal, you could watch that at any level. It is an outstanding goal to get in round the back on a diagonal and cut it back for Scott to score so I am really pleased and more to come hopefully.
“I am really proud of them. The last goal sums it up that Jak has run 60-yards and scored from two yards from the goal-line. That is what we want with and without the ball. Asante’s hat-trick goal was from a 50-yards sprint.
“The game plan was movement, get down the sides of them, Whelan coming in as a ‘10’ and running on and it worked and we got rewards.
“I don’t what’s happened before but all I see is winners in there, hungry players and a real togetherness.
“I am delighted but I just don’t want to get too carried away because we are only four games in.”
Asante rounded off his hat-trick with a superb solo goal for his fourth in a Town shirt already.
Rowe said: Three different goals, three different types of finishes, and he deserved the hat-trick ball at the end of the game.”
