First Spireites sub - 71 minutes
Kellermann off, Payne on.
A fantastic tackle and a block from the sub. Great defensive work.
The former Spireite loanee’s night has come to an end. He is replaced by Leitch-Smith.
20 minutes remaining.
Is doing a fine job this half in protecting the back three and at times he is playing in the backline.
Whittle and Khan also playing well.
My man of the match so far would go to Mandville though.
Have been the more threatening side this half but are just lacking that cutting edge.
Went down and needed treatment but is back on his feet now.
59 played, 2-0.
Off the line!
Alty’s Kosylo travelled a long way with the ball, shrugged off Mandeville, had a pop and it took a deflection and went narrowly wide.
From the resulting corner, Weston clears brilliantly off the line with his head. Top work. That was so close to crossing the line.
From Colclough who got away down the left before cutting in on his right. Comfortable save for Loach down to his left.
Shoots high and wide from inside the area after a decent counter involving Mandeville, Kellermann and Whittle.
