Jordan Bowery netted his third pre-season goal as Chesterfield came from behind to earn a draw in a warm-up game at Moss Rose on Saturday.

The 20-year-old striker - who has been tipped to blossom when the Spireites kick off in League One next month - bagged a double when John Sheridan’s men defeated Alfreton 4-1.

His leveller at Macclesfield came in the 39th minute after Dean Morgan had done the spade work.

Macclesfield had taken an eighth minute lead through former Nottingham Forest striker Emile Sinclair.

The draw at League Two Macclesfield came after pre-season victories over Alfreton, Matlock Town and Staveley MW.

Chesterfield’s build-up programme steps up a significant notch on Tuesday when they entertain Championship team Coventry City at the B2net Stadium. Kick off 7.45pm.
