Result: Chesterfield ease past Oxford United

Chesterfield earn a comfortable win against Oxford United, who finish their League Two clash with nine men.

Chesterfield showed their promotion credentials as they eased past a shot-shy Oxford United by winning 3-0 at the Proact Stadium.

Ollie Banks put the Spireites ahead when he rifled a low shot beyond the grasp of Ryan Clarke after Gary Roberts's cross.

Chesterfield doubled their lead from the penalty spot when Ian Evatt was adjudged to have been bundled over by Deane Smalley, and Roberts tucked away the resulting kick from 12 yards as the U's looked shell-shocked.

United's response before the break was unspectacular as they failed to register a single shot at goal before half time.

However, they were much brighter in attack after the break with Ryan Williams forcing a save out of Tommy Lee, and Chesterfield's defence needed to be alert to block Alfie Porter's effort soon after.

Oxford's quest to get back into the game was effectively ended when first Tom Newey was sent off for a bad foul on Banks and, moments later, Michael Raynes was dismissed for a second bookable offence to leave the visitors finishing the game with nine men.

Roberts compounded their opponents' misery with a third goal in stoppage time.

Chesterfield held on for the points, which keep them top of League Two and a point clear of second-placed Scunthorpe.
