The League Two visitors took the lead when 22-year-old forward Scott Boden evaded the home defence to score.

The Evo Stik Premier side went further behind when Jordan Bowery gives the Spireites a 2-0 lead with a neat finish.

And the first half drubbing was underlined by midfielder Mark Randall.

HALF TIME: Matlock 0 Spireites 3.

Marc Richards one of seven second half subs helped himself to two second-half goals in his first appearance.

Matlock’s consolation came from ex Spireite Gareth Davies, from a free-kick.
