By Maguire to deny Wootton from close-range. This is so tense.

Is taking Montgomery’s goal-kicks because he is struggling that much. 11 to go, 2-2.

Third Town sub - 77

Taylor on, Whittle off.

Big chance for Tyson again!

Tyson beats the offside trap, he is one-on-one with Slocombe but the Notts ‘keeper blocks it for a corner. How crucial that could be.

Big chance for Tyson to give Chesterfield the lead for a third time but his touch is too heavy and then Weston fires wide.

Wootton again. 18 minutes to go.

Tyson on, Rowe off.

For Gunning.

Reeves goes down in the box after a challenge from McCourt but the appeals are waved away. Looked the right call.
