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

The bid to ensure relegation is avoided was given a major boost by Chesterfield’s beating relegation rivals Crewe three-one to win for the first time in six-matches.

Early goals from Sylvan Ebanks-Blake’s, who saw his shot hit both posts before going in (unlike one for Spurs’ Dele Alli against Palace), and Lee Novak had Chesterfield in control inside 15-minutes.

Zoumana Bakayogo pulled one back for Crewe before half time but Connor Dimaio made sure of the win ahead of the hour to take the Spireites up to 19th and a point ahead of the bottom four.

These were the other results.

Southend v Burton 19:45

We’ll see the leaders in action on Monday but from the chasing pack only Wigan (two-one) profited with them looking a good bit for a top two finish by winning at promotion rivals Walsall.

Gillingham (two-one) suffered a surprise defeat to Oldham at Boundary Park but this win has helped boost the Latics’ own survival hopes with Fleetwood (two-one) doing likewise with a win against in-form Scunthorpe at the Highbury Stadium.

It’s looking bleak for Colchester (five-two) at the foot of the table now though isn’t it with a lead lost in a heavy defeat at Gigg Lane to Bury leaving the U’s looking a near certainty to drop into League 2 now you feel?
