Chesterfield   5 - 0   Rotherham

Highlights - Chesterfield 5-0 Rotherham

Chesterfield 5-0 Rotherham

Jack Lester hit a hat-trick as Chesterfield went 13 points clear at the top with a 5-0 win over Rotherham.

Dean Holden's diving header from Dean Morgan's cross was followed by Craig Davies converting a Drew Talbot cross.

Lester then earned a three-goal half-time lead as he fired into the top left-hand corner from inside the box.

The former Forest striker then struck with a low shot into the right-hand corner before completing his hat-trick from just inside the six-yard box.

Chesterfield dominated from the start but had to wait until the 21st minute to go ahead when, taking advantage of a scuffed clearance, Morgan's left-wing cross was met by Holden's head.

A wild Ryan Cresswell back pass saw the home side score their second 11 minutes from a short corner, Davies heading his 22nd goal of the season.

Lester went close moments later before adding the third in first-half stoppage time when he latched onto Danny Whitaker's pass and turned two defenders, before curling his shot past Andy Warrington.

Rotherham improved in the second half but Lester notched his second hat-trick of the season with two late goals in as many minutes, to spark angry scenes from visiting fans.

There were some ugly scenes in the away end as a section of Rotherham supporters turned over advertising hoardings and had to be restrained by police.
