Sylvan Ebanks-Blake
Sylvan Ebanks-Blake played a part in the equaliser before putting Chesterfield in front.

Chesterfield hit back with a strong second-half showing to see off Barnsley at the Proact Stadium.

Conor Wilkinson fired in from 12 yards to give the Tykes an early lead, but they were unable to extend their advantage before half-time.

Jay O'Shea levelled after the break from 15 yards, before Sylvan Ebanks-Blake put the Spireites ahead.

Sam Morsy made sure of the result a minute later with a firm 20-yard strike that cannoned in off the post.
