Chesterfield   2 - 0   Rochdale

Chesterfield 2-0 Rochdale

Chesterfield 2-0 Rochdale

Barry Conlon netted two penalties as Chesterfield boosted their hopes of promotion with victory against League Two leaders Rochdale.

Rochdale, who had won their previous three games, began well and Jason Kennedy's early shot was blocked.

But Dale keeper Frank Fielding was beaten by Conlon from the spot on 68 minutes after Nathan Stanton handled.

Conlon bagged his second penalty eight minutes from time after Rory McArdle tripped Ishmel Demontagnac.


Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"We've played better but we've beaten the team at the top of the league, who are by far the best team in the division.

"To get us a positive result and a 2-0 scoreline is very pleasing but it's the points that matter the most.

"I had a little go at them at half-time because I felt we had to do better and the players responded.

"I was pleased with the second-half performance. We took the game to them and got our rewards.

Rochdale manager Keith Hill told BBC Radio Manchester:
"I wasn't too concerned about the Chesterfield threat, I thought we nullified that, but decisions change games.

"I wouldn't suggest that the penalty was given against the run of play, I just think it was a harsh decision to make against Nathan Stanton.

"I can't, and I'm not, in the position to have a go at any of our players because of the exceptional work that we've done so far this season."
