Chesterfield   1 - 0   Northampton

On-loan Manchester City winger Donal McDermott netted a first-half winner for Chesterfield at Saltergate.

The teenager created several openings before he fired an angled shot from 20 yards past goalkeeper Chris Dunn and into the net.

Northampton were better in the second half and Ben Marshall rattled the Spireites post with a 74th-minute shot.

Dunn did well to deny Mark Allott before striker Jack Lester almost scored for Chesterfield in injury time.


Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield

"Very pleased to get off to a wining start. First-half performance I thought we were outstanding.

"We passed it, we moved the ball, created lots of opportunities and should have been more in front.

"The main thing was to get the three points and get off to a winning start."

Northampton Town manager Stuart Gray told BBC Radio Northampton:

"I thought we started brightly in the first five or 10 minutes. We put them under a little bit of pressure.

"Then John Curtis has (made a challenge), taking ball and man - in my day and John's day that's a decent tackle. From there on, there was a 10-minute period where we didn't get a break with the referee. The first half after that was not acceptable, the way we performed.

"The players have had a go second half, and we dominated possession, but we haven't scored a goal"
