WREXHAM REACTION: Rowe: 'We absolutely battered them'| Bad news as Carline suffers suspected broken knee cap

James Rowe said Chesterfield ‘absolutely battered’ Wrexham and that the result was ‘shambolic’ as the dominant Spireites had to settle for a point after conceding another late goal.

FT: Wrexham 1 v 1 Chesterfield

A really good response from the Spireites tonight after last week. Deserved more. Plenty of positives, but another late goal conceded.

Wrexham hit the crossbar

Hayden crashes one against the crossbar. Very close.

Payne is booked. I make this his fifth of the season and will miss Southed on Saturday.


Final Spireites sub - 90 minutes

Carline is stretchered off and is replaced by Whittle. Going to be a lot of added time now.

Carline has gone down in pain and the stretcher has been called for. This does not look good.
