Chelsea stars and fans react as Blues teen Alex Davey nets first career goal

Chelsea defender Alex Davey was congratulated on Twitter after opening the scoring in Scunthorpe United's FA Cup tie with Chesterfield Town.

Chelsea loanee Alex Davey was congratulated by teammates and fans on Twitter after netting his first career goal while on loan with Scunthorpe United. 

The Chelsea defender opened the scoring for United inside the first 20 minutes with a terrific effort from the edge of the box.

The Irons were then able to extend their lead to 2-0 before half-time as Lyle Taylor capitalised on a Ritchie Humphreys error. 

However, the resilient Chesterfield side didn't lie down and accept defeat as they fought back from two goals down in order to earn a re-match, which will be played at their home ground, the Proact Stadium on Tuesday. 

Despite the disappointing result for Davey, the Blues youngster was clearly elated with his first career goal and basked in the congratulations sent to him on Twitter by fans and teammates. 

The winner of the third-round tie between Chesterfield and Scunthorpe will be pitted against Steve McClaren's Derby County in the fourth round away at the iPro Stadium.

If the Irons can overcome Chesterfield in the replay, the test against the Rams could help Chelsea gauge just how much the young defender has progressed since his loan move to the North Lincolnshire-based side.
