Champions Sheffield United defeat Chesterfield to finish season on 100 points

League One champions Sheffield United beat relegated Chesterfield 3-2 to end the season on 100 points.

United twice surrendered the lead as goals from Kieron Freeman and Billy Sharp were cancelled out by efforts from Kristian Dennis (penalty) and Paul McGinn before Daniel Lafferty struck the winner.

The visitors' cause was not helped by the dismissal of Dan Gardner midway through the second half with the score at 2-2.

After Dennis had a couple of good chances early on, United struck the first blow when Freeman (18) tapped in following a goalmouth scramble.

Sharp saw his low drive well saved by Thorsten Stuckmann, who turned the ball onto his right post.

Dennis (45) equalised with a penalty, sending Moore the wrong way from the spot after the goalkeeper had brought down Reece Mitchell inside the area.

Sharp (59) put the hosts in front with his 30th goal of the campaign, a powerful header from a Samir Carruthers cross.

Chesterfield levelled again when McGinn (65) scored with a low, angled shot.

Gardner was sent off a minute later after clashing with Sharp.

And Lafferty (83) struck the winner when Stuckmann got a hand to his low shot but could not keep it out.
