Chesterfield vs Wrexham LIVE: Build-up, line-ups and odds

Wrexham deservedly go top of the league after that result. The Spireites are next in action on Saturday as they travel north to take on Gateshead - whereas the league leaders play at Maidenhead live on BT.

It was a tough tie for Chesterfield against a Wrexham side loaded with quality. I don’t think there can be too many complaints - the game might have turned in their favour had they taken one of their chances earlier on, but ultimately they left things far too late to ever look like drawing level.

FULL-TIME: Chesterfield lose 2-1 here to Wrexham at the Racecourse Ground.

95’: Colclough with a late goal - he dummied and finished low into the bottom corner, with a slight deflection on the way in. 2-1 with just seconds to play.

90+1’: Another great combination between Mullin and Lee - but the latter hits the bar from close-range.

90’: Six minutes added on here.

88’: McCallum receives a yellow card after an off-the-ball incident with Tunnicliffe.

86’: Good play from Wrexham sees Mullin free to pass the ball across the box to Palmer, who was waiting in a goalscoring position - but Grimes makes a crucial interception.

82’: Joe Quigley replaces Mike Jones for the Spireites.

80’: Uchegbulam is released and makes his way into the box but his pass is straight at the feet of a Wrexham defender.
