Sam Morsy captains his side to victory with a goal
The 23-year-old Wolverhampton-born Egyptian Sam Morsy started in his usual, central midfield position wearing the captains armband.
Chesterfield started the game brightly but were forced to make an early substitution when Daniel Jones came off with injury to be replaced by Gboly Ariyibi.
It was Ariyibi who assisted Caolan Lavery in Chesterfield’s first goal, who in the 30th minute slotted a shot to the left of the goal from inside the box.
Chesterfield continued to pile on the pressure and managed to get their second of the game in the 41st minute after Sam Hird latched on to a ball from a free-kick and fired home.
In the aftermath of the goal Fleetwood Town’s Antoni Sarcevic received a second yellow card and was sent off meaning Fleetwood would play the remainder of the match with 10 men.
Sam Morsy then added Chesterfield’s third after scoring from the centre of the box to the goalkeeper’s right again assisted by Ariyibi.
Chesterfield then made sure they weren’t going to let the lead slip by making some defensive substitutions leading, with the game ending 3-0 and Chesterfield gaining three valuable points.
Chesterfield currently lie in 7th place just three points and one place off the promotion play off places for the Championship.
