FT: Chesterfield 3 v 2 Dover Athletic
The Spireites score twice in four minutes to complete late comeback. Made hard work of it at times. Big sigh of relief. They really needed that.
Reaction coming up.
Dips over the bar. Not long to go.
Five minutes added
Chance for a fourth
But Whelan blows it. He breaks clear, beats his man, has a chance to shoot, but then tries to beat his man again and then the angle is against him. Saved.
3-2, 90 minutes are up.
Chesterfield have turned this game on its head in a matter of minutes. 2-1 down, now lead 3-2! King shoots into the bottom corner on his left from inside the area. Five minutes to go.
Khan blasts in from a very tight angle about a minute after Dover’s second.
Goal for Dover: 1-2
Goodman fires in first time at the back post after Chesterfield failed to clear a free-kick. So sloppy. 10 to go.
Another good save!
This time Andre’s tips over from King’s looping header at the back post.
Denton’s header at the far post is kept out by the diving Andre. Denton got across his man from King’s cross from the right. Great play all-round.
1-1 after 72 minutes.
