Substitute Luke Rawson struck twice in a five-minute spell at the end of the match as the Spireites beat Woking 4-0 at the Technique Stadium. Tom Denton set Chesterfield on their way with an early goal with new signing Alex Kiwomya also on target.

Tom Denton struck in the fourth minute, getting on the end of a long throw from Jordan Cropper to head past keeper Craig Ross at the near post.

When the visitors threatened following a corner, Curtis Weston blocked a shot.

There was a scare for the Spireites in the 13th minute when John Goddard found himself through on goal, but Sharman got in a vital block to deflect the ball wide.

Kiwomya did well on the right-hand side and squared to Jonathan Smith, who side-footed wide. 

Goddard tried his luck with a long-range effort which was easily gathered by Kyle Letheren.

Letheren made a save to keep out a free-kick from Charlie Cooper and then produced a fine stop to thwart Kane Ferdinand in the closing stages of the half.

Smith fired over from distance after Tom Denton headed the ball into his path. 

Tyler Denton came on as a 64th minute replacement for Milan Butterfield to make his Spireites debut.

Rawson struck five minutes from time, swivelling to fire low past Ross inside the area after Mandeville’s cross was knocked down.

Kiwomya scored a third in the 87th minute, with a deft near-post finish after getting on the end of a low cross from Cropper.
