Jay Emmanuel-Thomas scored two second-half penalties as Gillingham came from behind to shatter Chesterfield with a stoppage-time equaliser in a 3-3 draw.

Chesterfield were causing problems down the flanks but Gillingham created little until the 32nd minute when Emmanuel-Thomas was denied from 10 yards by Tom Anderson's block.
The visitors went further behind in the 52nd minute after Mark Byrne tripped Nolan and Dennis fired the spot-kick past Stuart Nelson's right hand.
Emmanuel-Thomas pulled one back with a 65th-minute penalty after Deji Oshilaja was pulled back by Anderson but Wilkinson lifted the ball over Nelson in the 72nd minute to make it 3-1.

Wagstaff then tapped in four minutes into added time to complete the comeback for the visitors.
