Chesterfield's wait for a league win continues

The Spireites came back late on to rescue a point against Bromley.

Chesterfield are still in the National League relegation zone following last night's 1-1 draw with Bromley at the Proact Stadium.

The Spireites needed a stoppage time penalty from Zavon Hines to rescue a point, which now means Martin Allen's men have drawn their last nine in the league and remain without a win in the competition since August.

Earlier on, the home side fell behind in the first half when George Porter headed home from a set piece in the thirty-sixth minute.

It took a late handball from the visitors to gift Chesterfield the chance to level proceedings in second half stoppage time.

Reflecting on the game, Manager Martin Allen said "It was a poor performance. We were poor from the first minute until the seventieth. I thought it was a particularly disappointing night for us."

He went on to say "I must've played four different formations-thankfully, the one at the end with three at the back managed to help us get something out of it. Apart from that, I didn't really see many goal scoring opportunities or much in the final third to get the supporters off their seats."

They return to action in the second round of the FA Cup on Sunday against Grimsby Town.
