Charlie Adam’s stunning strike for Stoke against Chelsea on Saturday has rightly made the headlines today, but was it the goal of the Easter weekend?
Bobby Zamora’s for QPR against against West Brom wasn’t bad either, nor was Jermain Defoe’s in the derby for Sunderland against Newcastle but in League One on Good Friday, Chesterfield offered a holiday humdinger of their own, though with a different approach.
While Adam went direct - as direct as you could possibly get, firing into the Blues’ goal from well inside his own half - Spireites showed that the quality of the football doesn’t always diminish when you look down a level or two.
Paul Cook’s side, renowned for their neat play, came from 2-0 down at Yeovil to win 3-2 and in amonst the three comeback goals was a special effort from Jay O’Shea, which finished off an incredible 17-pass move which would have been more at home at the Nou Camp than Huish Park.
