Slick Spireites put Stanley to the sword: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Two goals apiece from Craig Davies and Danny Whitaker and another from Jack Lester saw Chesterfield extend their lead at the top of the table to three points with a 5-2 home win over Accrington.

Chesterfield had scored 11 goals in their previous three games at the b2net Stadium and they were ahead in the eighth minute when Davies lobbed Alex Cisak.

Phil Edwards levelled from the penalty spot after 17 minutes when Scott Griffiths tripped Peter Murphy but when Kevin Long felled Lester in the 40th minute, Whitaker restored Chesterfield`s lead from the spot.

A minute later, Lester glided away from two defenders and slipped the ball past Cisak before Whitaker struck again after Davies punished an Edwards slip in the 56th minute.

Accrington replied again on the hour mark through Terry Gornell but another slick passing move sent Davies in for his second of the night and 12th of the season with two minutes remaining.
