Chesterfield’s winless run continues as they draw with Wealdstone

21 February 2023

Chesterfield saw their winless National League run stretch to seven games after they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Wealdstone.

The visitors, fresh from Saturday’s win over York, snatched the lead after 24 minutes when Micah Obiero fired home the rebound after home goalkeeper Ross Fitzsimons tipped Ashley Charles’ initial effort onto the crossbar.

It would prove to be that kind of night for Chesterfield, who were denied a leveller five minutes into the second half when a shot from Ryan Colclough struck the woodwork.

Chesterfield did finally draw level in the 65th minute when Armando Dobra curled home a superb effort from the edge of the box moments after coming off the bench.

The Spireites pushed in vain for a winner, with Darren Oldaker having a late penalty appeal turned down then Paul McCallum hitting his effort over the bar in stoppage time.
