Gnanduillet And Wafula take centre stage.

Gnanduillet And  Wafula  take centre stage.

A good crowd of over 500 turned out for the Derbyshire Senior Cup Quarter Final against Belper Town, quite a few vocal Belper fans had turned up to cheer on their team.

The first 15 minutes Spireites were poor and went behind after 11 minutes when Tuton managed to score. Belper were clearly up for this and looked a very physically strong side. The scores were level when Randall scored from the penalty spot after Rushbury handled the ball in his own penalty area.

The Spireites went in front when Gnanduillet ran towards the Belper defence, produced a few step overs before unleashing a right footed thunderbolt Into the goal. He then came towards the West Stand and stood in front of the fans and spread his arms wide. Suddenly he had arrived, having struggled to get into the game he was now full of energy and looking dangerous.

H.T 2-1

After the break a lovely cross from Randall found Hazell who headed home to put the Spireites 3-1 up. In the 65th minute Warne a former Spireite pulled a goal back for the visitors.

Randall gave a penalty away, luckily Barrington produced a brilliant save to deny the visitors a deserved equaliser.

Wafula who was my Man of the Match headed home from a Townsend corner. He looks a great prospect, produced some good touches and managed to find space, full of running. In my opinion if Darikwa did get sold in the summer I feel Wafula could be a natural replacement for him.

F.T. 4-2

A lot of credit must go to Belper for putting in a great performance more then matching their opponents, the Spireites just had a bit more class. I can see why Belper are having a good season, I would like to wish them well and hope they win the promotion they deserve.

Gnanduillet looks a great prospect, he showed great composure, as a great awareness and produced some good passes. He's got plenty of pace and he is fit and very athletic. His body strength needs working on, although he's not scared to get stuck in.

Dungworth the reserve team coach talking to the official website said: 'Armand took his goal very well. He was very positive when he picked up the ball and it was a great strike. 'Towards the end of the game, he had another great afford which forced the keeper to make what I thought was the save of the match. '

The crowd were buzzing and impressed with the Ivorian youngster, they particularly enjoyed his goal and the celebration and his response to the crowd. Dungworth was also impressed with the Right Back Brindley he said: Richard looked very energetic and full off confidence. He got forward really well in the first-half supporting Wafula and he looked a great threat. In terms of defending he did quite well in the second half. '

Both players performed well and should be very proud of themselves, in the end it was an enjoyable evening were the crowd went home happy having been fully entertained by both teams.

Chesterfield face Matlock Town at Causeway Lane on the 12th of February in the Semi Final of the Derbyshire Senior Cup.
