Dean Saunders’ Chesterfield got their League One campaign off the perfect start with a 3-1 win over Barnsley.
Jay O’Shea leveled the scores four minutes after the restart after solid work by Sylvan Ebanks-Blake before two goals in a minute from Spireites all but ended the contest. Ebanks-Blake turned on the edge of the six to hook home after Sam Hird had helped Dan Gardner’s corner on.
With the home crowd still celebrating, Barnsley sub George Williams erred and Sam Morsy benefitted, hitting a 20 yarder in off the post to make it 3-1.
