Morecambe   0 - 1   Chesterfield

Morecambe 0-1 Chesterfield

Morecambe 0-1 Chesterfield

An early header from Martin Gritton was enough to undo Morecambe and seal a rare away win for 10-man Chesterfield.

The Spireites took an early lead when Gritton headed in Barry Conlon's cross, and almost doubled their advantage when Conlon's overhead kick hit the post.

Phil Jevons and Craig Stanley rattled the woodwork for Morecambe, who were further boosted when Frankie Artus saw red for a second bookable offence.

But Chesterfield held firm for the win despite a late Will Haining effort.


Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"It's an important time and we've got to start picking points up.

"I don't think we played great but we did work hard, especially with only 10 men for over an hour against a very good team."
