Yeovil Town 2-3 Chesterfield

Chesterfield came from two goals down to beat Yeovil and stay on course for a top-six finish in League One.

Jay O'Shea stepped off the bench to score a brace and complete the dramatic turnaround for the Spireites.

James Hayter's one-on-one finish and Sam Foley's poked effort had the league's bottom side in front.

But Sam Hird headed in a corner before substitute O'Shea's 25-yard screamer and acrobatic winner gave Chesterfield a four-point play-off cushion.
