Chesterfield 1-1 Hartlepool United

Tendayi Darikwa

Ten-man Hartlepool battled to a point at high-flying Chesterfield for their fourth consecutive league draw.

The Spireites struck first when Marc Richards found Tendayi Darikwa at the back post who fired a first-time volley past keeper Scott Flinders.

But shortly after the break Matty Dolan levelled from the spot after James Poole was brought down by Sam Hird.

The away side played out the last 20 minutes with 10 men after Andy Monkhouse was shown a second yellow.
