Ten men Chesdterfield scored a memorable win at near neighbours Notts County as they won their Johnstone Paint Northern Section second round, 3-1.

They had midfielder Lee Johnson controversially sent off after 22 minutes for violent conduct after an incident involving Alan Judge.

It meants the Spireites had to regroup into a 4-3-2 formation, with Mendy, Randall and Clay as a midfield unit and Morgan linking the forward play with Bowery.

But the 10-men conceded a goal before the break, Bury born striker Karl Hawley doing the damage, before half time.

But Spireites showed their spirit by rallying with a 64th minute equaliser from midfielder Mark Randall.

And four minutes later, the visitors were ahead, with Dean Morgan on the score sheet.

The away following was in raptures when Nottingham-born Jordan Bowery made it 3-1 for Chesterfield.

A superb win given the sending off.

Spireites team and bench: Fleming, Holden, Downes, Grounds, Talbot, Mendy, Morgan, Johnson, Clay, Bowery, Randall.

Substitutes: Smith, Niven, Darwikwa, Westcarr, Boden.
