FT: Bromley 4 v 2 Chesterfield

The damage was done in the first 30 minutes. Woeful defending. The Spireites are under a lot of pressure now to cling onto a play-off place. Need a win from somewhere, but playing like that, it’s hard to see where it’s coming from.

Reaction coming up.

4-2.

By Loach to keep out Coulson’s free-kick from the edge of the box. It was heading for the bottom corner.

Final Spireites sub - 75 minutes

Whittle is forced off injured, Miller replaces him.

Brings a save from Balcombe at his near post after racing onto a through ball. Good start for the sub.
