We’ll see no repeat showing on a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final appearance this season as Chesterfield bowed out at the first round stage on Tuesday night.

In what will be a league 1 game the weekend after next, but at our place, Chesterfield went to Scunthorpe United’s Glanford Park looking to move a step closer to another Wembley final but our dreams were shattered with a 2-0 defeat.

Scunthorpe were off to a good start when Sean McAllister (15) scored on the turn after being put through by former Spireite Gary McSheffrey.

A moment that back-up ‘keeper Aaron Chapman will want to forget soon followed as his miss-kick left McSheffrey (25) with an open goal to score into to make it two-nil.

Chapman did redeem himself somewhat with a fine stop from Paddy Madden as the hosts threatened two run riot, with the Irish striker also have a couple more chances before the break.

Finally, into the second half, Ollie Banks forced Scunthorpe’s on-loan ‘keeper Bobby Olejnik into a good save but any hope of a fightback ended when we were reduced to 10-men.

Jack Broadhead’s second yellow card five-minutes from time allowed Scunny to comfortably see out a two-nil win.
