HT: Wrexham 0 v 1 Chesterfield

A brilliant first 45 minutes from the Spireites. If Tshimanga’s penalty had been scored 0-2 would not have flattered them. Boos for the home team at the break.

0-1.

Is booked for a ‘professional’ foul on the halfway line to stop Wrexham countering.

Lainton dived to his left and saved it. Could be a turning point, that.

Penalty to Chesterfield! Wrexham keeper Lainton brings down Tshimanga in the box.

Are becoming very frustrated at Wrexham’s ability to muster up any meaningful attacks. They keep giving the ball away.

James Rowe is furious with a challenge by Reckord on Carline just inside the Spireites half. Both players are down on the floor at the moment.

34 gone, 0-1.

Another chance for Tshimanga

The striker charged into the box and managed to get a shot off which Lainton tipped wide for a corner. James Rowe and the Town players felt Tshimanga was fouled as he got his shot off but the referee waves away the appeals.

Chesterfield have been the better side for me so far. They are looking much more threatening going forward than at Woking last week.

You won’t be shocked to hear Gunning has been immense.

Kellermann wins a header about 25 yards out, the ball runs through to Tshimanga, he turns and shoots at goal inside the box but Lainton tips it wide.
