Chesterfield 1-2 Millwall – League 1

CFCMillwall14

Chesterfield suffered a second consecutive defeat as Millwall ran out 2-1 winners on their first ever visit to the Proact Stadium.

The Spireites largely dominated the first half and took the lead after 25 minutes courtesy of a superb long range strike from Sam Morsy.

Their lead lasted less than two minutes, however, before Aiden O’Brien nodded home the equaliser despite the best efforts of goalkeeper Tommy Lee.

And the home side were made to rue missed opportunities as Lee Gregory’s goal early in the second period ultimately proved the difference to help the Lions move into the top six.

Chesterfield 7-1 Shrewsbury Town – League 1

7-1.1

Chesterfield kicked off the new year in style with an incredible 7-1 demolition of fellow League 1 strugglers Shrewsbury Town.

A wonder-strike from Jay O’Shea, followed by a penalty converted by the same man put the home side in the ascendancy before Lee Novak added himself to the scoresheet short before the break.

A comeback was briefly threatened by the visitors when Zak Whitbread bundled the ball home from close range. But the win rarely looked in doubt and the Spireites romped to a dominant victory with two more goals each from Rai Simons and hat-trick hero Novak on an unforgettable day for the side.

Chesterfield came within moments of a first league victory since October in Danny Wilson’s first game in charge of the Spireites.

Lee Novak’s glancing header had given the struggling Spireites a first half lead against promotion-chasing Coventry City.

The hosts held on valiantly and this goal looked to be enough for the three points until James Maddison salvaged a draw with a superb free-kick in the 89th minute.

Despite the late disappointment, new boss Wilson was in high spirits after the game – speaking of both his pride at taking the role and delight with the positive performance.
