Big Match Review - Aldershot 1 Chesterfield 0

League Two
Aldershot Town 1-0 Chesterfield
Saturday December 5, Recreation Ground, (Att: 2,977)

Anthony Charles's second half goal was enough for Aldershot to claim their third successive win and leapfrog their opponents into 6th in the League Two table.

However, it was a harsh scoreline on the visitors who dominated large spells of the game and could consider themselves unfortunate not to return to Derbyshire with anything to show for their efforts.

The Spireites started the brighter of the two sides and could have taken the lead but Jack Lester's header struck
an upright and Shots keeper Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz produced a fine save to deny Ian Morris.

However, they were made to pay for their missed chances when the hosts broke the deadlock midway through the second half though. Charles rising highest to nod Scott Donnelly's corner past Lee.

Chesterfield responded and were unfortunate not to level when a ball through to David Perkins ended with the midfielder's shot coming back off a post and bouncing away to safety.

However, it was the home side who took the points to remain unbeaten since Kevin Dillon's appointment as manager.
