Jay O'Shea rescued Chesterfield from a third successive home loss, as the League Two high-flyers came from two goals down to draw with York.

Luke O'Neill opened the scoring with a 25-yard effort in the first half before Ryan Jarvis nodded a second home after the break.

Armand Gnanduillet pulled one back from the penalty spot before whipping the ball in for sub O'Shea's equaliser.

Ian Evatt then hit the woodwork with a header but York held on for a point.

VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Chesterfield assistant manager Leam Richardson told BBC Radio Sheffield:

Chesterfield's Leam Richardson after York draw

"I thought we started the game on the front foot, they had three shots on target.

"Tommy Lee made a good save and the other two have gone in - and when things are going like that you accept them.

"We've had out little bit of luck, people may question our desire or say you're a victim of your own success.

"But I don't think anybody will be questioning the desire or endeavour tonight."

York City manager Nigel Worthington told BBC Radio York:

Post-match: York boss Worthington

"At 2-0 up you want to go on and try and win the game but you know Chesterfield are going to come at you.

"They're at home, they're up there and have good players and you've got to deal with that.

"I've got to say I'm absolutely delighted with the York players.

"They battled and fought and scrapped and played from second one.

"A point here is a very good point, make no mistake about that."
