John Sheridan hopes Chesterfield's victory in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy will provide the catalyst for npower League One survival.

The Spireites enjoyed a break from their league travails with a victorious first visit to the new Wembley, where a second-half own goal from Oliver Risser and an injury-time strike from substitute Craig Westcarr earned them a 2-0 win over Swindon.

Chesterfield are currently seven-points adrift of safety at the bottom of the npower League One table, and Sheridan said: "I think it will help us in the league - it certainly won't do us any harm. But I won't get carried away. It is great for the supporters because it is a trophy but I know where my priorities stand. I am desperate to stay in the division and I think we are good enough to stay in it."
