Chesterfield   1 - 0   Stevenage

Chesterfield 1-0 Stevenage

Chesterfield 1-0 Stevenage

Chesterfield maintained their five-point lead at the top of League Two with victory over Stevenage.

Drew Talbot scored the decisive goal before half-time with a 20-yard strike that crept inside Chris Day's post.

The visitors fought hard to find an equaliser with Chris Beardsley forcing a full-length save from Tommy Lee.

Darius Charles also went close for the Boro, however the Spireites held on as Stevenage came back to earth after their FA Cup triumph over Newcastle.


Chesterfield boss John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I thought we played really well considering we were playing a big physical side.

"I was very very pleased with the first half performance and we should have gone in in my eyes one or two up.

"Second half they made if difficult for us, there were one or two edgy moments."

Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"We have come away to the league leaders and have performed credibly over the 90 minutes, if a little hesitant in the first half.

"Once we did take the game to them we created a bit of pressure and could easily of snatched an equaliser.

"We are always looking to win the game and we certainly didn't do enough to win the game today."
