FT: Chesterfield 1 v 0 Yeovil Town

Paul Cook’s first win.

It was scrappy but they all count.

Reaction to come.

1-0.

Second Spireites sub - 89 minutes

Asante off, Khan on.

1-0.

Mandeville presses and wins the ball back on the edge of the Yeovil box. He plays a one-two with Asante and then has a shot at goal but it is blocked and the ball runs through to Smith in the Yeovil net.

Chesterfield have had more control this half but they need to be wary of the Yeovil counter.
