Our first win on the road this season and a Steve Morison double helps to make it a happy long journey home for the travelling 500.I always like to see Shane Ferguson playing further up the pitch as I feel that part of his game is missing when he is playing deeper. It didn't take him long to score, 13 minutes to be exact playing on the left wing where he picked up the ball and droved forward to send the ball low into the corner of the net. Chesterfield upped their game for a period but then that Morison double sent the home side down the tunnel at half-time 3-0 down. His first goal was a peach of a shot and the keeper had no chance of getting near it. Three minutes later he scored his 2nd by picking up the ball after a pass from Shaun Williams and superbly lobbing the keeper.

The 2nd half and Chesterfield pull one back. Fred goes off injured after replacing Joe Martin who was injured in the first half and Sid Nelson comes on. We were still a threat for the rest of the game and we see the game out with our new signing Calum Butcher on the pitch as he replaced Shane Ferguson who went off with a injury.
