EOIN DOYLE’S TERRIFIC form continued as he scored a hat-trick for the second match in a row night, as Chesterfield also had to come from three goals down to earn a valuable point in a thrilling 3-3 draw at Preston North End.

The 26-year-old Dublin native, formerly of Shamrock Rovers, Sligo Rovers and Hibernian, bagged his ninth, tenth and eleventh goal of the season in eight games for the League One side.

Simon Grayson’s men made a flying start and were 3-0 up inside half an hour, thanks to goals from Alan Browne, Joe Garner and Josh Brownhill.

But Doyle ensured the lead would be just two at the break with a deft finish before he brought the scores to within one with 11 minutes remaining.

There was time for one last twist as Chesterfield were awarded a penalty for handball in the area and the nerveless Doyle slotted home the spot-kick for Paul Cook’s men.

Here’s his hat-trick from the win over Scunthorpe on the weekend:
