Lineup notes:
According to the English Football Record facebook page, all of the Forest goals were scored as own goals by Chesterfield. Jim Denby, Samuel Jones and Jimmy Moore scored through their own net for Forest, so that puts the Joby Godfrey and James Birch goals into doubt, which is whom Ken Smales had awarded the goals to.
