chesterfield ended the season with a home defeat to the Bees.
A year ago Chesterfield and their fans were celebrating a Championship whilst this afternoon they wave a double goodbye: to League One and to retiring chairman Barrie Hubbard, having first held that position in 1983.
He’s had a couple of spells away from the boardroom since but has been the figurehead continually since 2003 with his everlasting legacy being leading the club to its current surroundings almost two years ago. He was presented to both teams in their respect routine.
There were no efforts on goal until the 11th minute when Saunders’ free-kick from way out on the left took a tiny deflection off the head of LEGGE to give the visitors the lead.
Brentford went further ahead after Allott lost possession on the half-way line, DIAGOURAGA burst forwards, slid by Ridehalgh, played a one-two with Saunders before hitting the ball home from 15 yards to end a first class move just short of the hour mark.
The scorer was booked for his understandably over the top celebrations.
Chesterfield pulled one back on 63 minutes when Boden’s placed shot hit the post and the ball rolled perfectly for MOUSSA to fire home.
Westcarr saw a powerful header clawed out by Moore. Moussa hit inches wide as the home fans began to get into the game. DONALDSON volleyED in from the edge of the six yard box.
The goal prompted some ‘Sheridan Out’ shouts from the home end, which began emptying fairly quickly soon afterwards.
ALLOTT hammered in his first goal for two and a half years in stoppage time.
