Chesterfield XI Beaten at Sheffield FC

16 July 2014

A Chesterfield XI, composed of a mixture of first team, youth and development players, put in a good performance against Sheffield FC, despite losing 2-0.

The home side ran out winners following a goal in each half from striker Jahmal Smith.

Sheffield hit the ground running and created some good chances early on with Sam Harty going close on numerous occasions and having a penalty shout turned down by the referee after some clever footwork in the box.

After withstanding the earlier pressure thanks to good goalkeeping from Miles Wright, Chesterfield began to grow into the game and found space on the wings but couldn’t provide the final ball.

An impressive run from his own half from Ben Algar almost put Sheffield ahead but the ball fizzed past the sprawling Wright and wide of the post.

The best chance of the first half for Chesterfield fell to Jake Beesley after a breakdown in communication in the Sheffield defence allowed him to bring the 

ball down and slot it into the corner of the net, only for it to be ruled out by the linesman’s flag.

The breakthrough finally came when Smith latched onto a loose ball in the box and rifled it into the net to give Sheffield the lead close to half time.

Chesterfield responded well after the break with a powerful shot by Jacob Smith going over the bar and a Mason Coy corner headed straight into the arms of Sheffield goalkeeper Jake Eastwood by Beesley.

However it wasn’t to be the Spireites’ day and it was Sheffield who looked the more likely to extend their lead with clear cut chances falling to substitutes Max Pemberton and Ash Lonstaff on multiple occasions.

Eventually a chance was taken when a series of unfortunate rebounds found the ball in front of Jahmal Smith who, with an open net to aim for, grabbed his second goal of the game with only a few minutes left on the clock.
