FT: Chesterfield 0 v 1 Stockport County

Paddy Madden’s first-half penalty wins it.

Reaction coming up.

Four minutes added


Hinchliffe makes a top save down to his left to keep out’s King’s effort. It looked in.

It’s that man Grimes again at the far post but he could not turn the ball in from King’s corner. Two minutes of normal time remaining.


Asante drags a shot wide after Khan pinched the ball off Johnson in midfield. Plenty of effort from the Blues today but they have lacked quality in the final third.

Welcome back, Danny Rowe

The striker makes his first appearance since October. He’s on for the last 15 minutes, replacing Denton.
