Spireites See Off Brave Daventry

Spireites See Off Brave Daventry

Cook made three changes to the side that drew against Scunthorpe, Jamie Devitt, Ritchie Humphreys and Jay O'Shea were replaced by Gary McSheffrey, Sam Hird and Eoin Doyle.

The atmosphere was building up nicely as both set of fans were in fine voice and gave it a real Cup vibe. A minute silence was observed immaculately for all those who gave their lives fighting for this country.

A new revolutionary Pink ball was being used for the game, although it looked orange to me. Ollie Banks had the first chance, running at a defender before putting his effort wide.

Marc Richards had an header blocked on the line, McSheffrey then hit the wrong side of the post.

The visitors were proving worthy opponents and Lorraine failed to find the target with his header. Daventry were causing the Spireites all kinds of problems, Oulton jinked his way through the defence and forced Lee into a save.

The referee blew his whistle to signal half-time, boos rang out from the kop.

H.T. 0-0.

Spireites come out fired up, McSheffrey forced a save out of the keeper and Banks went close.

Daventry Centre-back and Captain Liam Dolman also known has Bully had performed magnificently went off injured.

O'Shea came on for McSheffrey as the Spireites looked to take advantage of the situation. There was then a lenghty stoppage as Mykel Beckley received treatment and then was stretchered off. Gnanduillet got a big cheer has he replaced Richards.

A big sigh of relief for the home supporters midway through the second-half after a cross from O'Shea found Roberts, he calmly stroked it past the keeper.

With 5 minutes remaining O'Shea came close to putting the home side 2 up, forcing the visiting keeper to pull off a fine save.

Ryan made it 2-0 when his deflected shot found the back of the net.

F.T. 2-0

It wasn't pretty, some would say it was down right ugly, but the Spireites avoided a Cup shock and are through to the second round, an home tie against Southend.

I would like to give credit to Daventry for their gallant display, their magnificent fans should be proud of their team, I hope they go on to achieve promotion from their league.

Stand Up said: 'Credit to Daventry for bringing the game to us, but in the end professionalism won through, credit to the blues for not panicking, job done.'
