League Two leaders Chesterfield finally lose at new home
Who would have thought that after racking up a tally of 22 points from their first eight league matches at their new B2net Stadium, Chesterfield’s first reverse there would be inflicted by Burton Albion, who hadn’t won away all season?
The Brewers produced one of the upsets of the League Two season with a 2-1 triumph at the home of the leaders and 7/2 joint-favourites to be crowned champions, with Shaun Harrad scoring a late winner.
Chesterfield played the final half hour with ten men after the man who netted their equaliser, midfielder Derek Niven, was sent off, however it wasn’t a horrific weekend for John Sheridan’s Spireites, as none of their major title rivals took advantage.
Their closest challengers Port Vale, who are also 7/2 to top the table, were held at Northampton, Bury (6/1) were upset by Stockport and Shrewsbury (6/1) had to come from behind to salvage a point at Stevenage.
The only teams to make significant ground on the pacesetters were Wycombe, 1-0 winners over resurgent Bradford, and Rotherham, who defeated Oxford 2-1, yet they are still four and five points behind respectively.
Wycombe are 7/1 to finish first. See the full League Two football betting odds market here.
