Che Adams in action for Sheffield United
Che Adams has scored 11 goals for Sheffield United this season

Sheffield United eased to victory at the Proact Stadium to increase Chesterfield's relegation fears.

Alex Baptiste punished the hosts for failing to clear an early corner, prodding home from close range.

A miscued clearance from home keeper Tommy Lee allowed Che Adams to stroke the Blades' second into an empty net.

United's Ryan Flynn volleyed over, only for Billy Sharp to add a third against a Chesterfield side that remains four points above the relegation places.

Blackpool, who are in the last relegation spot, can move to within a point of the Spireites if they beat Rochdale later in the day.
