Sheffield Wednesday manager Gary Megson insists there is still plenty of room for improvement despite seeing his side beat Chesterfield 3-1 to extend their winning run to four games.

Goals from Lewis Buxton, Gary Madine and Ben Marshall gave Wednesday victory, with Leon Clarke, playing against his old club, scoring for Chesterfield.

"I was really pleased with the result because it was always going to be a difficult game for us," said Megson. "There are a lot of things we're doing well but we can't turn around and say that everything in the garden is rosy because there is work to do on certain aspects of the game."

He added: "I thought they looked a decent side at times. When they got their goal, I thought they were stretching us a bit and we were giving the ball away too easily. We didn't pass the ball well and we didn't keep it."

Megson hailed top goalscorer Madine after seeing the striker take his tally for the season to 10.

Megson said: "He's getting in positions where he can't miss and the skill is to get in the right positions to score. It's an art getting in those positions. That's what Gary is doing and long may it continue."

Megson has also been pleased with the contribution made by Marshall, who is on loan from Stoke.

He said: "Ben's a good player who's got quality. He can go right or left or play off the forward. He caused them one or two problems because of the quality he's got."

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan, who played for the Owls between 1989 and 1996, felt the result was not a fair reflection on how his side had performed.

He said: "I thought we played really, really well. How we've conceded three goals I don't really know? I thought we were the better team and we totally outplayed them."
