Chesterfield FC Reserves have slipped to defeat in their first Central League Cup clash.

They lost out 3-2 against neighbours Derby County at the B2net Stadium on Tuesday.

The Rams went in at half-time with a 2-0 lead but early in the second half, Dean Morgan made it 2-1 from the penalty spot.

Derby netted again but Jacob Hazel made it 3-2 with a great shot.

Derby pocket the points from this Group B game and Chesterfield will play Central League Cup games against Port Vale, Rotherham United and Stoke City, before the league winners and runners-up go through to face the winners from Group A and Group C in the competition’s semi-finals.
