Darlington   2 - 3   Chesterfield

Darlington 2-3 Chesterfield

Darlington 2-3 Chesterfield

Darlington's two-goal lead evaporated in the final 10 minutes as Chesterfield rallied in memorable style.

Tadgh Purcell gave the Quakers the advantage when he turned home Nathan Mulligan's low centre before sending a deflected free-kick past Tommy Lee.

Chesterfield substitute Simon Whaley pulled one back with an angled effort on 80 minutes before Drew Talbot's 30-yard piledriver made it 2-2.

And Richie Byrne scored a late own goal to complete Darlington's misery.


Chesterfield manager John Sheridan tells BBC Radio Sheffield:

"Obviously I'm happy to get three points after being two nil down. I wasn't happy at all with the way we played first half.

"You wouldn't have thought we were a team unbeaten in four and in a play-off position after the way we played first half.

"I said a few things to them at half time and credit to them they came out and had a go second half and got the rewards."
