FULL-TIME Chesterfield 3 v 2 Wrexham

WOW! Weston hits a 95th minute winner in off the underside of thee crossbar from inside the box which was the last kick of the game. The Proact erupts! Great scenes!

Four minutes added time


Will Evans' header from Buchanan's corner is cleared off the line. So close!

Second Chesterfield sub

Tyson off, Boden on.

Hooper pushes Evans in the face when down on the floor and again it could have been a red card for Wrexham. A lucky escape for Hooper.

The sub poked the ball home from a corner to get the Spireites level again.

Ponticelli finds himself one-on-one with Jalal and the striker slots the ball post Jalal. 69 mins played.

Tyson gets in behind the away defence but his shot his blocked by Pearson. Tyson has been impressive on his full debut so far. Mandeville wins a corner which Buchana takes but Evans can't quite get on the end of it and it goes behind for a goal-kick.

Chesterfield sub - 60 mins

Denton off, Mandeville on.

Weston played a risky back-pass to Jala and Ponticelli almost nipped in around Jalal but thankfully he stuck a leg out to stop what would have been a certain goal.


1-1. Will Evans headed past his own keeper Jalal to give Wrexham the lead on 20 minutes. Chesterfield equalised four minutes later through Denton who finished low into the bottom corner. The home side have had a possible shout for a penalty turned down and Wrexham could possibly have had a man sent off when Lawlor went in high on Tyson.
