Chesterfield 0-1 Peterborough United – League 1


Tom Nichols’ debut goal earned nine-man Peterborough United victory over Chesterfield on a dramatic afternoon at the Proact Stadium.

After a goalless and hard-fought first half, Nichols poked home the opener in the 55th minute. Just three minutes later, hopes of a Spireites comeback were improved when Michael Smith was shown a second yellow card.

But despite all the home pressure, and further depletion for the Posh when Ricardo Santos was sent off, the visitors managed to desperately cling on for all three points on another miserable afternoon for Chesterfield.



Chesterfield 3-2 Peterborough United – League 1

26-12014 CFC v Peterborough 060

The Proact Stadium’s final game of 2014 saw Chesterfield defeat Peterborough United in a five-goal thriller on 26th December.

An own goal from Gabriel Zakuani, followed by strikes from Armand Gnanduillet and Eoin Doyle, saw the Spireites race into a 3-0 lead in less than an hour.

But Posh pulled one back through Michael Bostwick’s header and Marcus Maddison ensured a nervy final 20 minutes for the home side when he narrowed the deficit to just one.

However, Chesterfield managed to hold on to the victory in an entertaining contest. The win saw them move just two points from the play offs.
