Wrexham move to the top of the National League with Chesterfield win
Wrexham moved top of the National League and extended their unbeaten league run to 22 matches with a 2-1 home win against Chesterfield.
Elliot Lee’s spectacular opener and Sam Dalby’s neat finish put the Red Dragons in control at half-time and despite Ryan Colclough’s stoppage-time effort, Phil Parkinson’s side secured a fourth straight win.
Former Luton midfielder Lee crashed home a stunning effort into the top corner after stepping on to Paul Mullin’s knockdown in the fourth minute.
Chesterfield goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons denied Mullin a second for Wrexham when he saved in a one-on-one before Wrexham doubled their lead in first-half stoppage time when Dalby raced clear and despatched a low finish.
Colclough’s header was brilliantly pushed onto the crossbar by Wrexham goalkeeper Rob Lainton before the visiting striker grabbed a late consolation for Chesterfield, who are now winless in nine league games.
