FT: Chesterfield 4 v 0 York City: LIVE UPDATES

Jacobs’ deflected shot forces Watson into making a good save.

Town well on top and pushing for a second now.



Chesterfield lead 1-0 on 49 minutes. Moments after Grigg hit the woodwork with a header, Banks arrows a beauty of a shot into the bottom corner.

Banks whips in a superb cross from the right. Grigg meets it with his head but it smashes back off the crossbar!

Gets away with a stray pass across his own box. That was nervy. But York failed to make the hosts pay.

The second-half is underway!

HT: Chesterfield 0 v 0 York City

Bit of a slow first 10 minutes but the Spireites have been on top since, although chances have been limited. Dobra and Jacobs with efforts on goal. Banks looking the more likely of anyone to open up the away defence.

Mandeville’s corner is only cleared to the edge of the box. Jacobs takes the strike on but Watson gets down low to his left to make the save.

A lovely threaded pass from Jacobs found Horton down the left. He squeeze in a cross, with Grigg lurking at the near post, but Watson dived on it.

From distance.

Town are more in control of this one now but it remain 0-0 on 34 minutes.
