Wycombe continued their laboured climb up the table with a 2-0 win against a dour Chesterfield side.

The Blues were full value for the three points with the difference between the two sides being Wycombe striker Andy Rammell, coming off the subs bench to fire a brace for his second and third goals of the season.

The first half was a torrid affair with both sets of strikers having to feed off scraps. Keith Ryan, who volleyed Wycombe's equaliser on Saturday at Barnsley had another goalbound volley blocked on 13 minutes.

The Wycombe midfielder then connected with Criag Faulconbridge's pass, but the header was comfortably saved by Carl Muggleton in the Chesterfield goal.

The former Stoke custodian then brilliantly kept out Lewis Cook's cross as it floated towards the far post, palming the ball away for a corner after 24 minutes.

Wycombe started the second half brightly, captain Paul McCarthy heading straight at the keeper from Cook's corner and the debutant winger continued to deliver crosses into the Chesterfield area.

However, Wycombe strikers Sean Devine and Faulconbridge were unable to convert any of the balls played into the area.

The deadlock was finally broken on 72 minutes when Wycombe midfielder Dannie Bulman delivered a free-kick into the heart of the Spireites defence, Andy THompson headed the ball down and substitute Rammell, who had only been on the pitch for four minutes rewarded his manager with a cool finish from four yards out.

Eight minutes later it was 2-0. Good work between Danny Senda, Michael Simpson and Wycombe sub Darren Currie on the Wycombe right, gave Currie the chance to deliver a pin-point cross and Rammell nipped in front of Muggleton to steer his header into the net for his second goal of the game.

Chesterfield never really looked like scoring and Wycombe keeper Frank Talia made sure of a clean sheet with a brilliant stop from David Reeves in added-on time
