Chesterfield suffered a bitterly disappointing 3-2 defeat at home against Solihull Moors in yet another National League game which was marred by a very serious injury that resulted in a Spireites player being stretchered off the pitch. It was all going so well for the Spireites when they took a 2-0 lead in the first half thanks to goals from Alex Whittle and Akwasi Asante. The whole dynamic of the match changed drastically though when Curtis Weston was shown a straight red card after only 22 minutes played. Solihull took full advantage of the extra man and ended up taking the lead thanks to goals from James Clarke, Callum Maycock and Harry Boyes. The Spireites ended a miserable afternoon with just nine men on the pitch when an atrocious tackle in the 87th minute left midfielder Jak McCourt in agony and he had to be stretchered off the field when the Spireites had already used up their allotted amount of substitutes. Despite the defeat, Chesterfield remain in second position in the National League but are now six points behind leaders Stockport County.

Alfreton Town’s league game at Kidderminster Harriers was abandoned after only half an hour played due to an atrocious injury picked up by Kidderminster player Matty Preston. The score was 0-0 at the time that the referee decided to abandon the game. Preston was treated by medical staff on the pitch for several minutes before being taken straight to hospital. The Reds have now slipped down to 14th position in the National League North table.
Buxton moved two places up to the top of the Northern Premier League Premier Division after a 1-0 victory at home against Gainsborough Trinity. Jason Gilchrist’s goal in the 29th minute of the game secured all three points for the Bucks. Buxton now sit one point clear of fierce rivals Matlock Town but have played two games more than the Gladiators.
In the NCEL Premier Division, Staveley Miners Welfare lost 3-0 at home to top of the table Grimsby Borough. A brace from Lewis Bemrose and a goal from Jordan Barnett condemned the Trojans to defeat and Staveley remain in eighth position in the league table.

Unfortunately, Matlock Town’s home game against Radcliffe in the Northern Premier League Premier Division and Chesterfield Women’s away trip to Lincoln United Women in the East Midlands Womens Premier Division were both postponed due to waterlogged pitches. The Gladiators have fallen one place to second in the league following Buxton’s victory over Gainsborough Trinity.
