Brentford rounded off their season with a hard-fought win at Chesterfield.

Leon Legge gave the west Londoners the lead after 12 minutes when he headed home Jake Bidwell’s free-kick.

And Sam Saunders provided the assist for Toumani Diagouraga to double the lead.

Franck Moussa pulled one back for the relegated club but Clayton Donaldon made it 3-1 with 10 minutes remaining.

Mark Allott scored in stoppage time but the Bees held on to claim the win.
