Goal for Wrexham - 84 mins - 1-1

Mullin heads in from a long throw. Such a soft goal to concede. 1-1.

Spireites sub - 80 mins

Payne on, Rowe off. He has had a really good game tonight. Led the line well.

Carline heads Mandeville deep cross to the far post to Tshimanga in the box, he gets it onto his left foot but it is straight down the middle at Lainton.

For Kerr.

Town still in front and, dare I say it, comfortable.

First Chesterfield sub - 60 minutes

Khan, who has been excellent, comes off for Mandeville.

Spireites still lead 1-0 and are yet to come under any real pressure.

King plays a short corner to Tshimanga, he twists and turns in the box and gets a shot off which Wrexham keeper Lainton must have got fingertips to because it hit the sidenetting and went behind for a corner.

French is on for Reckord.

Wrexham’s players were out five minutes before Chesterfield...perhaps manager Phil Parkinson has had a few words to say!

Off we go.
