CHESTERFIELD PRODUCED A gutsy recovery against Scunthorpe with goals from Eoin Doyle and Jay O’Shea forcing a 2 -2 draw in tonight’s FA Cup third round tie.

Playing for the right to face Derby in the fourth round, Scunthorpe took a 2 -0 lead into half-time thanks to goals from Alex Davey and Lyle Taylor.

However, with 20 minutes remaining former Shelbourne and Sligo Rovers striker Doyle converted a penalty to ignite The Spireites’ fightback. And six minutes from time the momentum had fully shifted to the visitors after O’Shea drove in the equaliser.

Here’s the draw for the fourth round of the FA Cup
