The final score of the match was 3-0, with the overall score over both legs of the tie 4-0 to Preston.

Chesterfield had a strong first half, with plenty of attacking threat, but fell behind through Jermaine Beckford's strike.

It got worse in the second half when Joe Garner scored a penalty, after Chesterfield goalkeeper Joe Murphy brought down Daniel Johnson in the box.

Murphy had only signed for the Spireites yesterday on an emergency loan deal from Huddersfield.
