How we rated every Chesterfield player in crucial win at Eastleigh
Here are the player ratings from Chesterfield’s 2-0 win at Eastleigh:
Shwan Jalal 9
Made three outstanding saves in the second-half at 0-1 and took the pressure off the defence by claiming crosses and set-pieces. A top performance.
Jordan Cropper 8
Played at right wing-back on his debut after signing on loan from Burnley. Got up and down the flank and stuck to his duties well. Solid and steady,
Jamie Sharman 7
Made his first start of the season in a back three. Faced a difficult task keeping strikers James Alabi and Tyrone Barnett quiet. Subbed midway through the second-half. Did not let himself down.
Will Evans 8
Made some superb blocks and tackles, especially one at the end from Scrimshaw. Getting back to the form what we saw last season.
Haydn Hollis 8
A solid display from the centre-half. Barely missed anything. Cleared his lines well and put his body on the line.
David Buchanan 8
Got forward at every opportunity to deliver crosses into the box in the first-half. Defensively sound in the second-half.
Sam Wedgbury 7
Battled well and certainly put himself about. Does not look quite up to 100 per cent fitness yet. Subbed midway in second-half for Mandeville.
Jonathan Smith 8
Showed lots of energy and looked to join in counter attacks. Scored a great goal from the edge of the box to make it 0-2. Two goals in two games for him.
Curtis Weston 8
Kept possession for the Spireites and things ticking over in midfield. Never stopped working.
Tom Denton 8
Came in for the suspended Mike Fondop. Helped clear a number of set-pieces throughout the game and scored the opener with a header from Scott Boden's cross on 54 mins.
Scott Boden 8
Worked hard all game. Created Denton’s opener. Had a good chance at the end of the first-half and early in the second.
Josef Yarney 6
Slotted into the back three as a sub on his return back from a hamstring injury.
Liam Mandeville 6
Came off for Wedgbury with 25 to go. Helped linked Chesterfield’s counter-attacks at 0-1.
Jack Mckay N/A
Replaced Boden with eight minutes to go.
