WATCH: Kellerman’s goal


Double Spireites change - 90 minutes

Clarke, who has been out since September, replaces Mandeville.

And Tshimanga comes off for Payne.



Chesterfield double their lead on 86 minutes. Kellermann fires into the roof of the net from a tight angle, assisted by Tshimanga. His first goal for the club. Absolute scenes in the away end.

But Oteh skews his effort wide from inside the area. Just before, Loach got down to his left to tip behind for a corner.
