YOUTH TEAM: Spoils Shared with Millers

25 April 2016

It was a point a piece in Staveley as the Spireites drew 2-2 with Rotherham United in their penultimate league game of the season.

A goal down at the break, strikes from substitute Jack Brownell and Tom Marshall put Spireites noses in front, but the hosts were unable to see the game out with Rotherham equalising in the closing stages.

Academy manager Mark Smith gave his view of the game: "We dominated the first half and did well creating a lot of chances but conceded from our own throw in, which could have been avoided.

"At the break we made changes. The pitch was difficult so we went a bit longer, more route one with runners, and that paid dividends.

"We got on top and pleasingly drew level with Jack Brownell, it was good to see a reaction from him from the bench as he did well and scored with a decent finish.

"Tom Marshall put us ahead with a strong header back across goal and over the 'keeper, and from there we had chances and could have put the game to bed.

"Their equaliser came in the last five minutes and it was a poor one to concede, poor defensively, but we had positives to take from the game and that was something."

Chesterfield: Parkin (gk), Hudson, Marshall, Jarrald, Daly, Rowley, Greaves, Daswell, Keillor-Dunn, Milner, MorrisonĀ
