Sheffield United 2-0 Chesterfield

Che Adams
Che Adams's goals against Chesterfield were his first in the Football League

Che Adams struck a brace as Sheffield United picked up their first win of the season at the expense of Chesterfield.

Adams's first came as he smashed home the rebound from close range after Conor Sammon's shot had been saved.

He then combined well with Sammon before calmly slotting an effort into the bottom corner to double the lead.

Sammon had a goal disallowed and Billy Sharp saw an effort brilliantly saved, while a Daniel Jones free-kick hit the woodwork for the visitors.

The result saw the Blades climb off the bottom of League One and join Chesterfield in mid-table.
