The hard frost that claimed three Chesterfield Amateur League games was not enough to stop Chesterfield Town on their travels to Middle FC.
Town dominated for long periods of the first-half and went in 4-0 up at the interval thanks to goals from Andy Woolven, Dean Spencer, James Dixon and Neil Hollingworth.
Spencer then made it 5-0 shortly after the interval and this seemed to kick start Middle who began to capitalise on several defensive lapses by Town. Middle scored three times in this period through Ritchie Bleakley and Luke Pegg twice to make it 5-3.
Spencer then missed a chance of completeting his hat-trick for Town after his penalty was saved after Woolven was brought down.
In the other game that was played Holmewood & Heath edged out Wheatsheaf in a five-goal thriller.
On target for Holmewood & Heath were Martin Fantom, Jordan Hunter and Michael Saville.
All teams are reminded to phone in their results by 4.30pm to the League Press Secretary.
