Accrington Stanley   2 - 2   Chesterfield

Accrington 2-2 Chesterfield

Accrington 2-2 Chesterfield

League Two leaders Chesterfield pulled off a stunning late comeback from two goals down at Accrington Stanley thanks to subs Deane Smalley and Scott Boden.

Sean McConville put the hosts in front early on, netting at the second attempt after Tommy Lee saved his first shot.

Terry Gornell doubled the lead, tapping in after a super cross from Ian Craney.

Smalley forced the ball in with two minutes to go and in the last minute of stoppage time Boden finished emphatically from Drew Talbot's cross.

The draw means the Spireites remain top of the table but now lead second-placed Rotherham by just two points.

Accrington remain in 18th, six points outside the drop zone.


Chesterfield boss John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"It looked like we weren't going to get anything from the game. I just have to take the point and be very grateful of it.

"To get results out of this league, you won't be able to play like that because you'll lose lots of games.

"It was a very off day and we should have got beat but we didn't."
