Chesterfield won a pulsating Johnstone's Paint Trophy tie 4-2 on penalties after Huddersfield staged a dramatic late fightback.

The two sides were locked at 3-3 following 90 minutes after Anthony Pilkington scored his second goal of the night and Nathan Clarke equalised in stoppage time when a Drew Talbot brace and Jordan Bowery had already put the home side 3-1 up.

But Pilkington then missed his spot-kick and Jim Goodwin also saw his penalty saved as Chesterfield went through to the quarter-finals.

John Sheridan's Chesterfield were in front after 57 minutes when Donal McDermott delivered a superb cross to the back post and Talbot headed past Alex Smithies, but Huddersfield levelled seven minutes later.

Tommy Lee saved Jordan Rhodes's header but Pilkington followed up to volley in the rebound, but Talbot struck again when he smashed in Mark Little's cross after 74 minutes.

Bowery fired low into the bottom corner in the 89th minute but Huddersfield took the tie to penalties through a Pilkington free-kick and a close-range finish from Clarke.

However, Chesterfield kept their nerve to progress, with Jamie Lowry, Jack Lester and Dan Gray as Pilkington and Goodwin were made to pay for their misses.
