Midland League.

Chesterfield’s Attack Shows More Thrust than Denaby’s.

Chesterfield Reserves deserved their 2—0 victory over Denaby United in a Midland League match at Denaby yesterday, having more thrust in the attack, although territorially Denaby had perhaps more of the play.

In the first part of the game Denaby attacked strongly, but hesitation by the forwards ruined several movements, while the other end Baldwin was always a dangerous raider. The visitors’ goals had element of luck about them, the first, after half-an-hour, being scrambled by Baldwin, and the second in like manner Tepper five minutes from the end.

Denaby battled desperately for an equaliser throughout the second half, but a great chance was lost ten minutes from the end, when Ashall missed a penalty. Robb, the visitors’ centre half-back, was the outstanding man on the field.
