Chris Maguire: Pre-season equaliser at Chesterfield

The League Two side looked to have got the better of their South Yorkshire neighbours but Maguire sidestepped his man and rifled a 20-yard shot past Tommy Lee to keep Dave Jones' side unbeaten in pre-season.

Jones handed a start to striker Atdhe Nuhiu, a free transfer from Rapid Vienna, and he went close to making a swift impact with a driving shot into the side-netting.

But the Spireites who took the lead after 29 minutes when trialist Hamza Bencherif rose highest to head a Gary Roberts cross beyond Chris Kirkland.

Drew Talbot missed a great chance to double the advantage early in the second half, firing rashly wide when he had time to steady himself, and Chesterfield were made to pay.

Nuhiu had seen a header to the back post well saved and Paul Corry nodded a Jermaine Johnson cross wide but Maguire finally made Wednesday's breakthrough with a shot that went in off Lee's right-hand post.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
