Chesterfield v Barnet

Chesterfield 2-1 Barnet

Chesterfield   2 - 1   Barnet

Jack Lester's second-half goal saw Chesterfield begin life at their new ground with victory over Barnet despite having Craig Davies sent off late on.

Dwayne Mattis put the Spireites ahead before the break, finishing a Drew Talbot pass from close range.

And Lester made it 2-0 when he beat two men and coolly fired home.

Glenn Poole's 18-yard shot gave Barnet hope but they could not draw level despite Davies seeing red for a late tackle on Steve Kabba on 83 minutes.

Goalscorer Lester was sacrificed by Chesterfield manager John Sheridan, who brought on Jordan Bowery to offer fresh legs up front, as Barnet poured pressure on to their 10 men.

But the Spireites, playing in their plush new b2net Stadium for the first time, hung on through seven minutes of injury-time to record an opening-day victory.


Barnet boss Mark Stimson tells BBC London 94.9:
"We're disappointed we didn't get anything from the game because we gave a good account of ourselves.

"The boys have had a go but I hope the supporters can see that and I think we are going to surprise a few people this year.

"Overall, we created good chances against a team who are going to be there or thereabouts."
