Barrow raced into a two-goal and it should have been game over by half-time. A Scott Boden penalty and a Fondop header saw the match end 2-2. Here's how we rated the Spireites players this afternoon...
Shwan Jalal. 7. Nothing he could do about Barrow's two goals and made a couple of vital stops to keep Chesterfield in the game.
Will Evans. 5. Started at right-back and really struggled. Poor in possession. Looked better after the break.

Anthony Gerrard. 4. Looked off the pace on his home debut and was subbed after the break.
Haydn Hollis. 5. A difficult afternoon for the centre-back. Barrow's attack caused him all sorts of problems.
Jay Sheridan. 4. Struggled on his first start for the club and was subbed at half-time.
Jermaine McGlashan. 6. Kept going and won the penalty for the first goal. Had a strong claim for a penalty towards the end.
Robbie Weir. 4. Was not really in the game and was subbed on 67 minutes.
David Buchanan. 5. A surprise selection in central midfield. Looked much more comfortable at left-back in the second-half.
Liam Mandeville. 5. Operated from the left wing in the first-half. Had a great chance to open the scoring early on and decent shout for a pen in first-half.
Mike Fondop. 6. Got his goal on 80 minutes with a header. Should have scored before with two good chances.
Scott Boden. 6. Worked hard and scored from the spot for his fourth goal of the season.
Josef Yarney. 6.5. Made an impact when he came on for Gerrard just after half-time.
Jonathan Smith. 6.5. Came on for Sheridan at half-time. Tidy on the ball and made midfield more solid.
Joe Rowley. 6. Replaced Weir on 67 minutes. Helped team to keep possession and increase the pressure on Barrow.
