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 1-1 Walsall – FA Cup Round 2

CFCWalsallFAC17

Sam Morsy’s last minute equaliser earned Chesterfield a replay as they drew 1-1 with Walsall in Mark Smith’s first game as the Spireites’ caretaker manager.

Jason Demetriou’s deflected effort had given the Saddlers a 19th minute lead and despite numerous good chances for the hosts in the second half, including a Sylvan Ebanks-Blake overhead kick off the underside of the crossbar, it looked as if Walsall would be heading through.

But in the final minute of normal time, Morsy scrambled home an Ollie Banks free kick to salvage a draw. The two sides will now meet at the Bescot Stadium a week on Tuesday to decide who joins the big names in Round 3.

The Dean Saunders era got off to the perfect start as Chesterfield turned around an early deficit to defeat local rivals Barnsley 3-1 at the Proact Stadium.

A nightmare start to the new campaign saw the Spireites fall behind to a Conor Wilkinson goal after just four minutes, but second half strikes from Jay O’Shea, debutant Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and captain Sam Morsy gave the home side victory as they turned the contest around in style and got the 2015/16 campaign underway with a victory.
