chesterfield came from Vale Park with three points.
The visitors took the lead in the 37th minute with a debut goal from O’SHEA.
Vale had everyone back for a Boa Morte free-kick, McDonald cleared it but Randall received, passed to Richards whose chest control was superb.
He squared for O’Shea, who slipped through two markers to sidefoot home.
The official stats showed Spireites enjoyed 63% of first half possession and whilst the only number of meaning is in the goals column, it does give a feel for how well the team kept the ball. Vincent forced Lee to save but the key action happened at the other end.
Randall and Boa Morte combined, fed Richards and his driven in cross clipped a heel and flew up for DARIKWA to head home at the far post in the 64th minute in front of the 618 travelling fans.
Lee had to stoop low to grab Pope’s downward header as the frustrated hosts looked to get back into the game.
