Chesterfield boost survival hopes with win over Swindon

Chesterfield ended a run of four defeats with a 2-1 win over Swindon to boost their hopes of staying in the Football League.

Chris O’Grady’s second league goal of the season and Andy Kellett’s strike was enough despite Rollin Menayese’s header after Swindon had Ollie Banks sent off.

Chesterfield scored with their first attack when Kellett’s cross was pushed out by Reice Charles-Cook and O’Grady bundled the ball over the line.

Aaron Ramsdale turned behind a Matt Taylor free-kick but both teams had to make a change when Swindon lost captain Ollie Lancashire and Chesterfield skipper Robbie Weir went off with a knee injury.

Swindon missed a chance in the 42nd minute when a corner dropped to former Chesterfield striker Marc Richards but he fired over from 12 yards and Chesterfield went further ahead in the 51st minute.

Jak McCourt played Kellett in and the midfielder turned inside a defender before steering a low shot inside the right post from 16 yards.

Banks had a shot deflected against the bar before he was sent off for a late challenge on Louis Reed in the 72nd minute but Menayese headed in a Taylor free-kick three minutes later.
