Jay O'Shea: Cracking goal

CHESTERFIELD made their final visit to Underhill and made it Under and out with a 2-0 victory.

Goals came from Jay O’Shea and Sam Togwell

Scott Boden was given the task of playing as lone striker with Jay O’Shea supporting.

Chesterfield began the game kicking down the steep Underhill slope, the downside to that being keeper Lee, who made his club debut here in 2008, had the spring sun directly in his eyes.

Trotman made a solid tackle to halt Hyde’s run but Chesterfield defended the corner with ease and broke from box to box with O’Shea and Togwell central to the move.

Spireites will be reflecting back on a half that only rarely saw their goal threatened, but Boden and his colleagues also were unable to build up any head of steam against the hosts’ solid back line.

Fitness coach Shane Nicholson was bellowing ‘liven up everyone’ from the technical area and almost immediately Boden turned on Cooper’s ball and Barnet had to scramble it clear.

ick as, on 57 minutes, Chesterfield ended Barnet’s long run without conceding.

Talbot fed a low ball to the box edge for O’SHEA to turn and fire in a cracker beyond Stack.

Twelve minutes from time, Spireites did what they’d done last time they’d been pinned back: they broke away to score. Talbot spread the ball wide to Darikwa who left his marker in fine style to deliver a low cross for TOGWELL to convert from close range.
