Chesterfield beat Fleetwood Town 3-1 in their Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area Final first leg at Highbury Stadium.

Chesterfield have claimed a 3-1 victory over Fleetwood Town in their Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area Final first leg at Highbury Stadium.

Eoin Doyle had an early chance to open the scoring for the visitors, but after latching on to a ball over the top, he fired wide of the post.

They continued to dominate and Antoni Sarsevic came close with a strike that he drilled just wide.

In the 21st minute Chesterfield made their pressure count as a free kick from Gary Roberts was met by Ian Evatt, who finished into the bottom corner.

They doubled their lead three minutes later, when Sam Morsy curled a strike from the edge of the box into the back of the net.

Doyle came close to grabbing a third when his chipped effort beat Scott Davies in the Fleetwood goal, but dropped wide of the post.

David Ball pulled a goal back for the hosts on the stroke of half time, as he headed in a cross from Jon Parkin.

After the break Jimmy Ryan restored Chesterfield's two-goal advantage, when he fired an effort from long-range into the bottom corner.

Ritchie Humphreys denied Parkin from scoring a second goal for the home side, after blocking his close-range effort.

Fleetwood came close again in stoppage time, when Alan Goodall rose highest to meet a corner, but he could only head the ball over the bar.

The second leg will take place at the Proact Stadium on February 17.
