SPIREITES STAY IN WITH SHOUT

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Aaron Bower

BRAD­FORD re­main in pole po­si­tion to take the fi­nal League Two play-off place, but Sam Tog­well’s late goal en­sured Ch­ester­field snatched a draw, leav­ing coach Mark Cross­ley adamant the Spireites can fin­ish sev­enth. Bren­dan Malone’s per­for­mance.

“I thought we dom­i­nated the game in truth; we com­pletely had the bet­ter play and we had about three or four penalty ap­peals turned down, with a bla­tant one missed with the hand­ball,” Parkin­son lamented.

“It’s an ab­so­lute disgrace how that’s not been given, I’ve no idea what he’ll say to me but there’s four of­fi­cials and they’re all con­nected with mi­cro­phones, so some­one surely must have seen it.

“The lads were ter­rific, but I think if we’d have had a bet­ter ref­eree to­day we’d have got at least two penal­ties for sure. It was al­ways go­ing to be dif­fi­cult against a good side like Ch­ester­field, but I

thought we did well.”
