HUDDERSFIELD Town duo Alan Lee and Jimmy Spencer were both on target as Town chalked their first senior win of pre-season, 3-0 against League II JPT Trophy winners Chesterfield.
Lee pounced after eight minutes and Spencer on 23, while substitute Jordan Sinnott rounded off the scoring three minutes from time..
Boss Simon Grayson opted for a 4-4-2 formation as Town looked for a first goal in three games.
Antony Kay – who is being strongly linked with a possible move to MK Dons – captained the side and lined up in central midfield alongside Anton Robinson with Scott Arfield on the right wing, playing his first match of pre-season after recovering from the ankle injury he first suffered in the first leg of last season’s play-off semi-final against MK Dons.
Spencer and Lee were partnered up front, leaving Jordan Rhodes, Lee Novak and Sean Scannell to feature against Barcelona B at the John Smith’s Stadium tonight (7.45).
Kallum Higginbotham was on the left against a Chesterfield line-up including former Town loan man Neal Trotman and the experienced Terrell Forbes.
Scotland Under 21 call-up Murray Wallace partnered Jamie McCombe at the centre of defence on a pristine B2net Stadium pitch.
Town were first to threaten in only the second minute when Lee tested keeper Tommy Lee with a looping header from Higginbotham’s free kick.
And the Irishman didn’t have to wait long to register after an excellent flowing attack.
Spencer provided the opening with a lovely pass inside the left-back to release Arfield and, when his curling shot rattled back off the far upright, Higginbotham kept his cool to tee-up Lee for a 10-yard left-foot finish.

Town continued to control the first half and, other than a long-range Mark Randall effort which was well off target, the defence were having a stroll, with Arfield proving his fitness with a crunching challenge on Forbes.
Grayson’s side continued to probe and, in the 23rd minute, they went two ahead. Arfield was again involved, finding space and providing a clever cross which was met with perfect timing by Spencer, who directed a gliding header into Lee’s unguarded right hand corner.
