Morecambe almost took the lead inside 20 seconds when Phil Jevons was denied by Tommy Lee, but former Chesterfield keeper Barry Roche was tested by 20-yard drives from Mark Allott and Lester.[LNB]Roche blocked a close-range shot from Lester early in the second half and Wade Small fired just wide 60 seconds after coming on for his Chesterfield debut.[LNB]But Morecambe were unlucky when Jevons' 25-yard strike came back off the crossbar before Roche made another great save to foil Jamie Lowry.[LNB]Chesterfield broke the deadlock in the 75th minute when Small crossed and Drew Talbot's shot hit Lester on the shoulder and flew into the net.[LNB]But the visitors responded three minutes later when referee David Webb adjudged Ian Breckin had blocked a cross with his hand and Jevons sent Lee the wrong way with the spot-kick.[LNB][LNB]
