Chesterfield defender Will Evans had to put the gloves on after an injury to goalkeeeper Luke Coddington when all three subs had been used.

Myles Hippolyte opened the scoring for the visitors after just two minutes when he side-footed the ball past Luke Coddington frominside the area.

Rhys Murphy grabbed his 15thof the season from the penalty spot on 24 minutes after the striker was fouledby Anthony Gerrard.

Curtis Weston thumped in a superbvolley from distance to give Chesterfield a lifeline on the hour mark.

But within minutescaptainEvans hadto put the goalkeepergloves on after Coddingtonwent off with what looked like a serious injury after slipping in the wet conditions when kicking the ball.

Town had already used all their three substitutes, with Matt Tootle stretchered off early in the first-half,and so played more than half an hour with 10-men and their centre-half between the sticks.

Yeovil could not take advantage of their extra men and claimed the three points while the Spireites have now gone seven games without a win and are second bottom of the division.

The match had beenin doubt before kick-off due to heavy rainfallwith two pitch inspections held at 6.30pm and 7pm but referee Thomas Parsons called the game on but with a delayed start of 8pm.

John Sheridan named an unchanged starting line-up and bench from Saturdays defeat to Bromley.

The hostsgot off to the worst possible start when Hippolyte placed a shot into the bottom corner after two minutes.

Town were dealt another blow when Tootle was stretchered off resulting in seven minutes being added on at the end of the first-half. David Buchanan replaced him and went into midfield while Will Evans moved toright-back.

The Blues first sight of goal came when Mike Fondop headed against the crossbar from a Jay Sheridan free-kick but the striker was ruled offside.

The promotion-chasing visitors doubled their lead on 24 minutes from the penalty spot after Gerrard brought downMurphy in the box.

Murphy sentCoddington the wrong wayas boos rang around the Proact from The Bluessupporters, who have now seen their team already lose eight times at home this season.

It could have been more for Yeovil before half-time had it not been for a smart double save from Coddington to deny Hippolyte and Courtney Duffus.

Boss Sheridan brought on Tom Denton and Jermaine McGlashan before the hour mark to try and find a way back into the game.

And the break through came when Weston volleyed in from 25 yards following a corner to give Chesterfield hope.

But before they had chance to mount another attackCoddington slipped when kicking the ball andwas stretchered off after being down for more than five minutes.

Evans went in goal but was not really tested apart from having to punch a cross clear.

Town had one late opportunity through an acrobtaic effort from Jermaine McGlashan in the last minute of nine added on but it would not have been deserved.
