VIDEO: Morsy scores again as Chesterfield claim advantage against Fleetwood
Egypt-eligible midfielder Sam Morsy was among the scorers for Chesterfield FC for the second time already this month to help the Spireites seal a 3-1 away win against Fleetwood Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday.
Ian Evatt opened the scoring for the visitors against the run of play on the 21st minute, after neatly turning home a Gary Roberts free-kick.
22-year-old Morsy, who only just scored his first goal for the League Two side on Saturday, rifled home from 18 yards to double the Spireites’ advantage three minutes later.
Fleetwood grabbed a goal back before the break through David Ball, but Chesterfield managed to restore their two-goal cushion thanks to Jimmy Ryan’s curling effort on the hour mark.
It is worth noting that English-Egyptian Morsy has previously expressed his desire to represent Egypt on the international level.
Chesterfield, who are also currently at the top of League Two, now have the upper hand going into the return leg – with the winner advancing to the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final to be played at Wembley.
