Chesterfield 2-0 Scunthorpe United – Final Third Development League

CFCReservesScunthorpe1

Chesterfield’s reserve side made it two consecutive wins in the Final Third Development League by defeating a youthful Scunthorpe United side 2-0 on a comfortable afternoon at the Proact Stadium.

A goal in either half, both coming from defenders, earned the Spireites three points in a game that they dominated from start to finish.

Liam Graham got on the end of Jordan Slew’s low cross to open the scoring in the 13th minute. And Slew was once again the creator when Laurence Maguire got on the end of his strike to poke home from close range early in the second period.

The result makes it two home wins in a row for the Chesterfield reserves following on from the 7-0 victory over Gateshead last month.

Harrison’s composed stoppage time finish salvaged a point for the Spireites after Kyle De Silva thought he had won the game for the visitors just moments earlier.

Chesterfield had led at the break courtesy of Harrison’s opener but a 75th minute header from Jimmy Spencer levelled a game which rightly ended level after a dramatic conclusion.
