Two first half goals from Caolan Lavery and Sam Hird plus a 63rd minute strike from Sam Morsy were enough for Chesterfield to end their four match losing streak against ten man Fleetwood who lost Antoni Sarcevic as well as seeing manager Graham Alexander invited to watch part of the match from the stands.
Paul Cook’s side came out on top in the two legged Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern Final to earn a trip to Wembley whilst on the final day of the season, Gary Roberts grabbed the come from behind winner that clinched the League Two title.
A win for Chesterfield this afternoon would be celebrated with almost as much glee as on those two occasions as Spireites attempt to get their points total moving again after being stuck on 42 for the last four games.
A home win would see Spireites, starting the day in 10th spot, leapfrog Graham Alexander’s Cod Army who sit two points and two places in front.
