Chesterfield 2-1 Oxford Utd

Chris Atkinson scored in stoppage time as Chesterfield came from behind to beat Oxford United in League Two.

Chesterfield keeper Tommy Lee returned to the side after two months out, but was beaten within the first minute by John Mullins's back-post header.

Lee then made a flying save from Jake Forster-Caskey's header but the hosts levelled on the stroke of half-time as Liam Cooper fired in from 12 yards.

Atkinson won it in stoppage-time as he slid a low shot inside the far post.


Chesterfield manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"Again we made it a difficult game.

"We work so hard on not conceding an early goal, at the minute we can't but help concede an early goal. You wouldn't think we've worked all week.

"I thought the players showed great courage. Its hard to be patience in football but to come back and score two goals is a great testament to the players."
