Spireites hit six

Eoin Doyle opened and closed the scoring in Chesterfield's 6-0 thrashing of non-league Braintree in the FA Cup first round.

Doyle, Jay O'Shea and Sam Clucas each netted before the break to put the Spireites in control before Gary Roberts, a Remy Clerima own-goal and Doyle's second completed the rout.

Doyle opened the scoring for Chesterfield after 21 minutes, turning home his 16th goal of the season after Clucas' effort was parried away by Nick Hamann.

The League One outfit doubled their lead 10 minutes later, O'Shea swivelling inside the Braintree box to curl a fine shot into the top-right corner.

And Clucas scored a tap-in after good work on the right by Tendayi Darikwa to make it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time.

Roberts made it 4-0 after 53 minutes with a brilliant left-footed volley that left Hamann rooted to the spot.

O'Shea had a neat finish chalked off for offside shortly afterwards, but it did become five when substitute Clerima inadvertently turned into his own net following a swift Chesterfield counter-attack.

And Doyle got his second of the match in the final minute, firing home from the edge of the Braintree box to complete the scoring.
