A goalkeeping blunder eight minutes from time denied Hull top spot in League One as battling Chesterfield came back to earn a well-deserved 1-1
Junior Lewis had given Hull a 74th-minute lead but Tigers keeper Boaz Myhill appeared to punch a Shane Nicholson corner into his own net in the 82nd
minute to give the Spireites a share of the spoils. Although Hull will be disappointed to have missed out on the summit, Chesterfield deserved a point
for their character after Derek Niven was sent off for a second yellow card in the 54th minute.
Garreth O'Connor earned Bournemouth a point with a clinical strike to secure a 2-2 draw at rock-bottom Stockport. O'Connor's rasping drive seven
minutes from time denied the Hatters three points after Chris Armstrong scored his first ever League goal and Joe Dolan netted his first goal for
County. Earlier, Bournemouth took a deserved lead when former Arsenal trainee John Spicer grabbed his eighth League goal of the season, heading in
O'Connor's fifth-minute cross.
