Wigan Athletic 3-1 Chesterfield – League 1


Danny Wilson’s unbeaten run as Chesterfield manager came to an end on Saturday at the DW Stadium as Wigan Athletic defeated the Spireites 3-1.

Max Power’s sixth minute strike put the hosts ahead before two goals in a minute from Reece James and Michael Jacobs gave Wigan a dominant half-time advantage.

Half-time substitute Ollie Banks pulled one back for the Spireites late on, but it proved to be nothing more than a consolation as Wilson’s side suffered defeat for the first time in 2016.



Chesterfield 2-3 Wigan Athletic – League 1


Three goals in the final nine minutes saw Wigan Athletic turn around a two-goal deficit to earn all three points on a crazy and dramatic afternoon in Chesterfield.

But just as the home side appeared to be cruising to a fourth victory of the season, Barnett made up for his earlier error with an excellent 81st minute strike to give the Latics hope,

Former Chesterfield hero Craig Davies then restored parity from the spot, before Jordy Hiwula poked home in the 90th minute – completing a memorable comeback and sending the Spireites fans home stunned.
