Chesterfield 1-0 FC Halifax Town

Resurgent Chesterfield moved out of the relegation zone and extended their National League unbeaten run to six with victory over Halifax at the Proact Stadium.

Early on, Haydn Hollis had a header saved by Sam Johnson as the hosts threatened, while at the other end, Shwan Jalal tipped a dangerous Jordan Preston cross over the bar.

Marc Antoine-Fortune nearly gave the Spireites the lead before the break when he was teed up by Jon Smith's pass in the box, but rolled his chance an inch wide.

Scott Boden climbed off the floor midway through the second half to convert a decisive penalty into the top corner, having himself tumbled over a stray Halifax leg to win the penalty.
