Jack Clarke equalised late on to cancel out Matty Warburton’s first-half opener.

The top two share the spoils.

The Spireites stay top of the league.

He looks to have pulled his hamstring again. He tried to sprint but pulled up.


From Miller goes all the way through to the far post but there was no one there to take advantage.

Chesterfield are the team pushing for the winner.

Of stoppage time. Still plenty of time for a winner here.


Clarke comes off the bench to tuck the ball away from close-range after great determination from Whittle. Five minutes of normal time remaining but going to be a lot of added time. 1-1.
