Scunthorpe United 1-1 Chesterfield – League 1

GlanfordAway1

Jamal Campbell-Ryce scored on his debut to earn Chesterfield a valuable point against in-form Scunthorpe United at Glanford Park.

The hosts were largely dominant in the first half and took the lead after just 18 minutes when top-scorer Paddy Madden rounded Tommy Lee to score his 17th league goal of the season.

But the Spireites were much improved after the interval and Campbell-Ryce got on the end Jay O’Shea’s cross to score just seconds after coming off the bench to move his new side five points clear of the relegation zone.

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.

Chesterfield 0-3 Scunthorpe United – League 1

CFCScunnyMadden16

Paddy McFadden scored twice as Scunthorpe United defeated ten-man Chesterfield 3-0 at the Proact Stadium.

The division’s top scorer opened the scoring from the spot just shy of the hour mark after Dan Jones had fouled ex-Spireite Gary McSheffrey.

The defender was shown a straight-red card for the tackle and this proved to be the turning point in what had previously been a very even contest.

McSheffrey doubled the lead against his former club with a superb first time strike before Madden put the icing on the Iron’s cake, making it 3-0 twelve minutes from time.
