Hereford thrashed League Two leaders Chesterfield to move eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Stuart Fleetwood put the home side into an early lead with a firm header from Joe Colbeck’s cross from the left.

Craig Davies hit the post for the visitors after the break but Steven Leslie doubled Hereford’s lead with a low drive from 20 yards.

Colbeck curled in a third from 18 yards for the Bulls as they secured only their fourth home win of the season.
