Chesterfield 3-0 Oxford United

Ollie Banks

Chesterfield remain one point clear at the top of League Two as Oxford United's promotion hopes were dented.

Ollie Banks scored from close range after poor Oxford defending and Gary Roberts converted a penalty after Deane Smalley fouled Ian Evatt.

The U's had two men sent off in the final 10 minutes - Tom Newey for a tackle on Banks and Michael Raynes for two bookings.

And Roberts latched onto a throughball to compound Oxford's misery late on.

The U's, who finished the game with eight men after Johnny Mullins was taken off on a stretcher, are now winless in six games and have drifted eight points away from the automatic promotion spots.
