Cheltenham   0 - 3   Chesterfield

Cheltenham 0-3 Chesterfield

Chesterfield beat Cheltenham to extend their lead in League Two to 11 points.

Despite a bright start by the home side, the Spireites took the lead when Ashley Eastham's disastrous error allowed Craig Davies to slot in.

The visitors doubled their advantage shortly after the restart when Davies teed up Kieran Djilali, who blasted home with an 18-yard strike.

And Davies sealed the victory when he shrugged off Eastham and fired the ball past goalkeeper Scott Brown.


Cheltenham Town boss Mark Yates told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:
"We started really positively and were well in the game, but the second goal just after half-time really took the wind out of our sails and then they just pressed on.

"We can take a lot of positives from today, but we also need to learn by looking at how they played and aspiring to be as good as they are.

"I'm disappointed and I hope the players are as well, but at least today we were beaten by a very good team."
