Chesterfield draw at Hartlepool

It finished 1-1 at Victoria Park.

Chesterfield bounced back from Saturday's 4-0 thrashing at Sutton United by earning a point at Hartlepool United on Tuesday evening.

Manager John Sheridan made four changes following their previous outing, bringing Shwan Jalal, Sam Wedgbury, Charlie Wakefield and Tom Denton into the Spireites' starting line up.

However, those alterations didn't pay dividends to begin with, as the hosts took the lead within ten minutes.

Peter Kioso prodded the ball into the net from close range after just nine minutes following a fumble by goalkeeper Jalal.

Despite this early set back, Sheridan's men levelled from a set piece before the interval.

A Gevaro corner on thirty-seven minutes was nodded in by striker Tom Denton, as he notched his first goal of the season.

Both sides had chances to win the game in the second-half, but it finished all square in the north-east.

Speaking afterwards, Chesterfield's Assistant Manager Glynn Snodin praised his teams response to Saturday's defeat in London;

"At Sutton, they let themselves down, they let the fans down, and they let the manager down.

"They needed to repay everyone tonight, and I think they have done.

"I thought we had the better chances to win it in the second half."

He also felt those who came into the side performed admirably;

"You try everything when results aren't going your way, and I think the lads who came in did well tonight."

The result leaves the Spireites twenty-third in the National League.
