Chesterfield’s League 1 season continued with a win against Sheffield United at the Proact Stadium on Saturday.

A three-nil defeat means Chesterfield remain very much involved in the relegation battle after Sheffield United went away with the points, other results later in the day weren’t too bad for the Spireites.

Alex Baptiste put Sheffield United ahead on four-minutes with Tommy Lee’s mistake punished by Che Adams to double the lead on 35.

Billy Sharp added the third for the Blades on 59 with the gap between us and the bottom four at four-points.



Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Burton (nil-nil) missed the chance to close in on the leaders when held by Barnsley, who are still seeking a play-off place, but the Brewers retain second place behind Wigan (three-one) who were surprisingly beaten by relegation threatened Doncaster, who gave their slim chances of staying up a boost.

The Gillingham (two-one) defeat to Port Vale leaves the Gills holding onto the final play-off spot.

Colchester (four-one) are strong favourites to join Crewe in going down with the fading chances of a miraculous escape dented by the loss at the Weston Homes Community Stadium against Peterborough.

Crewe are gone, Colchester and Doncaster likely to join them with it the final relegation spot that’s very open at the moment.

With it currently Blackpool (three-nil) holding this after the defeat at Rochdale leaving them two-points off Shrewsbury (one-one), who drew with Bradford, and Fleetwood (one-one), who drew with Oldham, with the Latics a further point on from Pools.
