Full time

Match action:

3mins – Two early free kicks into the Chesterfield box, but neither amounts to anything as the home side clear their lines.

7mins – Dean Morgan is played in with a ball over the top, but as he takes his time to line up a shot Jon Ashton is quickly back to clear the ball out for a corner, from which Drew Talbot shoots wide.

10mins – A few too many balls straight to Alan Julian from the Chesterfield midfield. The home fans aren’t happy early doors.

14mins – Derek Niven shoots from 20 yards, but he isn’t able to wrap his foot around the ball and pings it far too wide of Julian’s goal.

15mins – At the other end Ronnie Henry whips in a cross and Darius Charles, climbing, loops a header at goal and Tommy Lee has to push it over his bar.

20mins – Bostwick hits a fierce strike and Lee has to palm it over his bar. From 25 yards.

27mins – Long free kick deep to Bostwick who gets free from his man, shoots at goal only for it to hit Aaron Downes, seemingly on the arm, and go out for a corner.

34mins - Morgan hits a free kick at the Boro goal but it deflects off the wall and over Julian’s bar.

40mins – GOAL: Bostwick heads back at goal from a Long corner, and under pressure from Lee, Darius Charles heads home from six yards. Boro lead 1-0.

42mins – Straight up the other end and Julian gets caught underneath a long cross and Lester, at the far post, heads goalwards. However Ronnie Henry is there to clear the ball off the line to keep Stevenage’s lead in tact.

45mins - Jack Lester heads against the post from a yard. Mark Roberts makes a mistake for Boro and Talbot runs towards goal. He gets past Scott Laird, who slips, and crosses to the far post where Lester is waiting but it’s a howler of a miss from just one yard.

46mins – Ashton slides in to stop Drew Talbot from finding a team-mate in the box.

53mins – Long corner, deep, Ashton tangles with his marker before heading back across goal for Roberts to head home. Ashton, however, had been penalised for a foul in the build-up.

63mins - When the home side do see a chance Lester can only bury it into the crowd behind Julian’s goal from a tight angle a minute before Morgan, on the volley, also shoots wide.

65mins – Bostwick is sent off – he was booked earlier in the half for a tackle outside the box and saw a second yellow for a late challenge on Mark Allott on 65 minutes. Charles drops into midfield to fill the gap, leaving Harrison up front on his own but he is soon replaced by Chris Beardsley.

70mins – After Westley bemoaned a lack of alertness from his team at set pieces midweek, Stevenage are almost undone again as Chesterfield take a quick free kick and Lester sees his effort deflected wide.

73mins – Beardsley runs on to a Lawrie Wilson through ball, but running away from goal his shot at goal is across Lee and out at the far post.

77mins – Danny Whittaker runs on to a Roberts clearance, cuts inside but curls a shot wide of Julian’s goal.

79mins – Julian’s at it again. A ball is played into the Boro box and as he runs out to beat Jordan Bowery to it just inside the edge of his box he slides on the floor but doesn’t take the bal, getting just a finger on it. The ball runs straight past him, and so does Bowery, but his effort from a tight angle only goes behind the Boro goal.

83mins – Beardsley goes down in the box under a challenge, but although he appeals the referee declines him a penalty.

90mins – Six minutes added time.

96mins – GOAL: And Chesterfield level the game in the final minute of added time. The second time in a week Stevenage have conceded in the dying moments of a match. Lester it is who heads home from six yards after Morgan crosses into the box from the left. 1-1.
