The Spireites who took the lead after 29 minutes through trialist Hamza Bencherif, who rose highest to head a Gary Roberts cross beyond Chris Kirkland.

Drew Talbot missed a great chance to double the advantage early in the second half when he had time to compose himself but could only fire wide.

Chesterfield were made to pay for their wastefulness late on when Maguire unleashed a spectacular 20-yard strike that beat Tommy Lee and bounce in off the right-hand post.
