FT: Chesterfield 2 v 0 Halifax

Third Spireites sub - 82 minutes

Dobra, who appears to be saying he is fine to continue, does indeed come off and is replaced by Uchegbulam.

Oh dear. He has gone down unchallenged. The physio is on. Looks like his hamstring again.

Second Spireites sub - 78 minutes

Dallas off, McCallum on.


Chesterfield double their lead on 70 minutes, 2-0. Dobra, who replaced Quigley just seven minutes ago, smashes home from close-range.

First Spireites sub - 63 minutes

Dobra replaces Quigley, which should mean Dallas goes up front.

A poor ball by Palmer sells Grimes short and Halifax have two chances on the counter but they don’t make the most of them.

Stott replaced Debrah at the break.
