Chesterfield 3-3 Gillingham – League 1

dscn9962

Chesterfield threw away a two-goal lead to draw 3-3 with Gillingham as a 95th minute Scott Wagstaff goal stole a point for the visitors.

Connor Wilkinson opened the scoring after little more than 60 seconds and Kristian Dennis doubled the hosts’ advantage from the spot not long after the start of the second half.

A Jay  Emmanuel-Thomas penalty pulled one back for the Gills, but Wilkinson’s second of the evening restored the two-goal advantage in the 72nd  minute.

However, a second Emmanuel-Thomas spot kick set up a nervy conclusion and in the final minute of additional time, Wagstaff found the net to snatch an unlikely point for Gillingham.

Conor Wilkinson’s double earned Chesterfield a first victory in five league games as they brought Northampton Town’s incredible 31-game unbeaten run to an end.

A goal in either half from Wilkinson, making his home debut after joining on deadline day, put the Spireites in a commanding position.

The Cobblers briefly threatened a comeback when Paul Anderson pulled a goal back shortly after the hour mark, but Kristian Dennis flicked Dion Donohue’s strike home twenty minutes from time to seal a 3-1 victory for the home side.

Chesterfield suffered a first home defeat of the season as Steve Morison’s first-half brace helped Millwall to a 3-1 victory in North Derbyshire.

Shane Ferguson put the visitors ahead inside a quarter of an hour, before Morison scored twice in four minutes to give the Lions a three-goal lead at the interval.

The Spireites battled in the second half and Sam Hird’s 65th minute header appeared to give them a glimmer of hope. However, they struggled to break down the solid Millwall backline and, in truth, a comeback rarely looked likely as the Lions travelled home with all three points.

Chesterfield secured League 1 safety in their final home game of the season with a 3-0 victory over Bury.

Jay O’Shea’s 29th minute spot kick opened the scoring before the lead was doubled in first half stoppage time courtesy of a deflected Lee Novak strike.

Dan Gardner, on loan with today’s opposition until only last week, then scored just two minutes after joining the action to seal victory and most importantly third tier survival.
