Chesterfield 4-0 Wycombe

Chesterfield kept their slim hopes of League One survival alive with a thumping victory over fellow strugglers Wycombe Wanderers.

Franck Moussa's corner was bundled in by Craig Westcarr to give the Spireites a half-time advantage.

Moussa extended their lead when he ran at the Chairboys defence and fired home before Alex Mendy curled a superb effort past visiting keeper Nikki Bull.

Jordan Bowery cut inside and bent home a fourth late on.

The win moves Chesterfield onto 36 points, 10 points from safety with four games to play.

Wycombe, who were totally outplayed throughout, remain four points adrift of 20th place and are now looking likely to make an immediate return to the bottom tier of the Football League.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Chesterfield assistant manager Tommy Wright tells BBC Radio Sheffield:

"First 15 minutes, we looked a little bit nervy, which is understandable.

Chesterfield were excellent says Tommy Wright

"Once we got the goal and the second goal just after, I thought we were excellent.

"We were like last year, when we moved the ball quickly.

"We used our energy, the two full-backs were excellent, they got in good positions and we caused Wycombe all sorts of problems."
