Wrexham dropped into the bottom four as Chesterfield inflicted Dean Keates' first defeat since his return as manager.

Michael Chambers' own goal handed the Spireites a second away league win on the bounce and lifted them out of the drop zone and above Wrexham.

Chambers headed on a Tom Denton flick past his stranded goalkeeper Rob Lainton.

Wrexham hit the post but Chesterfield held on.

Wrexham manager Dean Keates said: "It was frustrating. I thought first half we played some decent football but we didn't make their keeper move enough.

"Second half the tempo dropped and we didn't create much at all. We made substitutions trying to change it but we didn't get the ball wide enough, we go again Saturday."
