Braintree Town 1-3 Chesterfield

Bottom-of-the-table side Braintree slipped closer to relegation from the top tier of the National League with a home defeat against Chesterfield.

Scott Boden gave the Spireites a 14th-minute lead at Cressing Road when he finished a knockdown from Tom Denton.

Charlie Carter doubled the visitors' advantage seven minutes later by curling into the bottom right corner from distance.

Luke Allen halved the deficit from the penalty spot in the 64th minute

But Boden headed home his second with seven minutes remaining to ensure a fourth successive loss and leave Braintree 14 points from safety with 10 fixtures remaining.
