Chesterfield 3-3 Gillingham – League 1


Chesterfield threw away a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Gillingham as a 95th minute Scott Wagstaff goal stole a point for the visitors.

Connor Wilkinson opened the scoring after little more than 60 seconds and Kristian Dennis doubled the hosts’ advantage from the spot not long after the start of the second half.

A Jay  Emmanuel-Thomas penalty pulled one back for the Gills, but Wilkinson’s second of the evening restored the two-goal advantage in the 72nd  minute.

However, a second Emmanuel-Thomas spot kick set up a nervy conclusion and in the final minute of additional time, Wagstaff found the net to snatch an unlikely point for Gillingham.



Chesterfield 1-3 Gillingham – League 1


Rai Simons’ first ever league goal wasn’t enough to stop Chesterfield slipping to a sixth defeat in eight games on Saturday against Gillingham.

The Bermudan’s composed strike had put the hosts level nine minutes after John Egan capitalised on a Tommy Lee error to open the scoring.

But Rory Donnelly’s fifth goal in three league outings regained the visitors’ lead, before Harry Lennon sealed their first away victory since August with a close range header 15 minutes from time.

Another disappointing afternoon for Chesterfield saw them fall to 16th in the table and remain without a home win since the opening day, despite manager Dean Saunders believing that it was one of his sides’ best performances of the season.


Chesterfield 3-0 Gillingham – League 1


Chesterfield returned to winning ways on Tuesday 17th March 2015 with an impressive 3-0 victory against Gillingham.

The Spireites made sure that Saturday’s home defeat was quickly forgotten as they raced into a two-goal lead inside 12 minutes thanks to goals from Sam Clucas and Jay O’Shea.

And Clucas, who played the role of striker following Caolan Lavery’s return to Sheffield Wednesday, rounded off an excellent performance with a goal in 88th minute to keep the Derbyshire club’s play off dreams alive for another day.
