Kasabian performed their final show of 2014 at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Saturday 13th December to bring to an end an incredible year for the band.

The performance in the steel city saw the indie rockers’ tour reach its conclusion, having played shows at arenas all over the UK during the past couple of months – including a five-night stint at London’s Brixton Academy.

All this capped off an amazing year for Kasabian. June saw the release of their fifth studio album, ’48:13′, which quickly became their fourth consecutive number one. But perhaps most impressively, the summer also saw the four-piece headline Glastonbury Festival, one of the most prestigious achievements for any band.

Chesterfield fell to their first defeat in seven games as Bradford City ran out 1-0 winners at the Proact Stadium on Saturday 13th December 2014.

Billy Clarke’s superb second half strike proved to be the difference between the two sides as the Bantams moved to within a point of the play off spots.

The Spireites had earlier been reduced to ten men after Sam Morsy received a straight red card after an incident that saw his arm raised towards Bradford’s Andy Halliday.

The defeat ends a dreadful week for Chesterfield, who were charged on Monday for fielding an ineligible player in their second round victory over MK Dons and face being kicked out of the FA Cup.
