Chesterfield continued their steady climb away from the National League relegation zone as they beat high-flying Notts County 1-0.

Gevaro Nepomuceno's first-half volley helped the Spireites make it four wins from their last five league games - having previously only won once since April.

In-form Notts came into the match in fifth spot, having picked up 13 points from a possible 15 in the last month, and looked the more likely scorers early on.

Kyle Wootton curled a shot just wide for the visitors before Kristian Dennis drew a good low save out of Chesterfield goalkeeper Shwan Jalal.

However, against the run of play, Chesterfield hit the only goal of the game in the 27th minute.

Scott Boden's cross from the right found the unmarked Nepomuceno at the far post, and he slid in to volley past Sam Slocombe.

That was the on-loan Oldham winger's first goal for the club and it proved to be the winner in front of a crowd of 5,432, as Notts struggled - and ultimately failed - to find an equaliser.

Magpies defender Richard Brindley had his second-half effort held by Jalal before the unmarked Mitchell Rose headed a late corner wide at the far post.
