This week’s golden goal goes back to August 2014 and the start of the season in the Carling Cup as the Spireites tried to make the second round for the first time since 2006.

Ollie Banks had been out of action since the previous March when he picked up an injury at Wembley, but on this night he announced his return to fitness in real style.

The midfielder had only been on the pitch for a few seconds as a substitute for Ritchie Humphreys when he made his mark.

A short pass from Sam Morsy found the returning Banks racing into the Huddersfield half and without stopping he lifted the ball from 35 yards up and over the keeper and into the back of the net.

The tremendous dipping, right-footed strike made it 2-0 to Chesterfield after Humphreys had opened the scoring.

Sadly for the Spireites it all went wrong late on. They were leading 3-1, after Eoin Doyle had struck as well, with just 19 minutes remaining before losing out 5-3 in extra-time to the visitors.
