Milan Butterfield Scores & Named Man Of Match

October 25, 2020

Milan Butterfield scored for Chesterfield FC as they claimed a 7-6 penalty shoot-out win over Stockport County, with the Bermudian footballer also named Man of the Match.

The club’s match report said, “The hosts took the lead just before the hour mark through Hogan. Letheren’s punch from a corner fell to the defender who just tapped home into an empty net.

“With 15 minutes to go, the Spireites though they had scored a deserved equaliser. Tom Denton’s effort rebounded off Buchanan before the striker lashed home. However, the offside was up as Buchanan strayed marginally offside.

“In the 86th minute, Chesterfield finally found a leveller. Tom Denton knocked the ball down to Butterfield, who smashed the ball home at the near post. The score stayed at 1-1 and the tie went to penalties.

“After the first two penalties, the score was 1-1. John Rooney and Yarney had their efforts saved by Letheren and Hinchliffe respectively.

“Every subsequent penalty was dispatched by the taker until the seventh round of penalties. Sam Minihan blazed his spot-kick over the bar before Butterfield coolly rolled his penalty into the back of the net.

“The Spireites won 7-6 on penalties to book their place in Monday’s FA Cup first round draw.”
