York City grab last-gasp leveller against Chesterfield in npower League Two
5:24pm Saturday 8th September 2012 in Sport
A SPECTACULAR injury-time strike from Jason Walker earned York City a 2-2 draw with Chesterfield in npower League Two.
The Minstermen appeared to be slipping to defeat at Bootham Crescent as they trailed 2-1 in the last minute of stoppage time, but Walker's shot on the turn rifled into the Spireites' net from ten yards.
The visitors had dominated the majority of the game and led thanks to goals from Sam Hird and Craig Westcarr, sandwiched either side of Michael Coulson's 40th minute goal for the home side.
On-loan Leeds full-back Charlie Taylor was given a particularly torrid time by Chesterfield's Drew Talbot, but City's never-say-die spirit earned them a point.
The draw saw Gary Mills' men move up two places to seventh in the League Two table, answering the manager's pre-match call for an assault on the play-off places.
Meanwhile, City were drawn at home to Coventry City in round two of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
The tie will be played in the week beginning October 8.
