Chesterfield 3-3 Colchester United – League 1

CFCColc1

Chesterfield threw away a two-goal home lead for the second consecutive week as they drew 3-3 with Colchester United in a thriller at the Proact Stadium.

The Spireites were forced to play 75 minutes with ten men when Drew Talbot was shown a straight red after bringing down debutant Marvin Sordell, who the referee adjudged to be the last man.

Despite this, the home side charged into a 3-1 lead courtesy of goals from Dan Jones, Lee Nocak and Sam Morsy and looked to be sailing to a fourth league victory of the season.

But just as they had done last week, Chesterfield let the advantage slip.

George Moncur gave Colchester hope with a 76th minute strike and the three points were once again lost in heartbreaking fashion when Charlie Raglan bundled the ball into his own net in the third minute of stoppage time.
