Spireites fan John Hall has praised his side’s fighting spirit after last night’s impressive draw at Preston.

Chesterfield fought back from three goals down to snatch a last-gasp draw after Eoin Doyle scored his second hat-trick in two games.

Said John: “As one of the fans returning home last night from the game at Preston, you can imagine how exhilarated we all were after that ‘true spirit’ performance by our team throughout the whole game.

“I’m so proud of all the staff and players for orchestrating a magnificent comeback.

“I have to say that our team is in the best shape, in all respects, since our last claim to national fame during the 1997 fantastic F A Cup run.

“We must give them out utmost support to keep this exciting, thrilling style of play, going for the future.

“I sincerely hope other larger clubs who have money to spare do not take away our, now treasured, managment team and players, because it there would be tremendous heartache if that happens.”
