FT: Dag & Red 2 v 2 Chesterfield

The Spireites come from two goals down to claim a valuable point.

Reaction coming up.

For Dagenham’s Reynolds but his touch lets him down inside the area. Phew.

For Whittle for a shirt tug.

Heads over a corner from King.

Two minutes left, 2-2.

Chesterfield down to 10

Second yellow card for Grimes. Chesterfield will play the final six minutes plus injury-time with 10-men.


Whittle lets fly from distance with a superb strike which Daggers goalkeeper Justham is forced to tip over. Great effort.
