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.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
