Chesterfield come from behind to draw at Maidenhead

It finished 1-1 down in Berkshire.

Chesterfield showed their character away at Maidenhead to pick up their first point of the new National League season last night.

After losing 2-1 at home to Dover on the opening day, a late Josef Yarney strike ensured the Spireites didn't leave Berkshire empty handed.

The visitors started with more intensity this time around and were unfortunate not to lead at the interval, and were boosted by the returns of Laurence Maguire and Haydn Hollis.

Sam Wedgbury also made his first league start in over a year following a serious knee injury.

However, the hosts went in front on the hour mark when Remy Clerima converted a cross with his left foot.

Yarney then cancelled out Clerima's effort with thirteen minutes remaining when he smashed in the equaliser from a Will Evans knock-down.

Speaking afterwards, Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told Spireites Digital;

"I thought we were excellent after Saturday's disappointment.

"We played some really good stuff, moved the ball quickly, and created good opportunities to score goals.

"Saying that, our final pass at times wasn't there, so I'm disappointed that we've only got a point. We should've won the game."

The Spireites will look to secure their first victory of the 2019/20 campaign away at Boreham Wood on Saturday.
