  • FT: Woking 3 v 1 Chesterfield

  • Three changes for Chesterfield as Jamie Grimes, Jeff King and Saidou Khan replace Laurence Maguire, George Carline and Jak McCourt.

For McCourt, who has only just come on. It was for a late challenge on Kretzschmar.

Rowe is straight into the action and plays in Khan. He makes his way into the box but narrowly shoots wide.

Spireites subs - 76 minutes

Double change as Rowe and McCourt replace Mandeville and Payne.

Are turning Chesterfield at every opportunity here and it is working. They are causing the visitors a lot of problems here.

For Grimes.

Chesterfield have been struggling to get up the pitch this half and the conditions are not helping.

They are going to have to dig in now if they are to get anything from this one.

Campbell brushes off Grimes too easily and his shot has too much for Loach.


65 played.

By Loach down to his left to keep out a shot from Lofthouse who made his way into the box.

Chesterfield need to try and regain some control here.

For Payne. Let’s just say that was a professional foul to stop Woking breaking. Very blatant.

First Town sub - 56 minutes

King off, Carline on.
