VIDEO: Northampton Town v Chesterfield

Thunder and lightning weren’t the only things to light up Sixfields on Saturday, as Dan Gardner inspired Chesterfield to a 3-1 win at Northampton Town.

Gardner, on his full league debut, cancelled out Darren Carter’s penalty for the hosts before Gary Roberts and Armand Gnanduillet sealed the three points for the Spireites.

The win moved Paul Cook’s side up to second in League Two and just a point behind leaders Scunthorpe United, who were held to a goalless draw with Fleetwood Town last night.

It means Chesterfield would return to the top of the table tonight if they are able to avoid defeat away at York City. Keep up to the minute with the action on Twitter via @DTimes_Sport and www.derbyshiretimes.co.uk.
