Marcus Tudgay had equalised the match in the 90th minute as he followed up his own saved penalty. It was the second time the Owls had levelled in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy second round north tie.

Dean Morgan had flicked home Drew Talbot's 10th minute right wing cross but Neil Mellor made it 1-1 90 seconds later as he followed up an excellent burst by Clinton Morrison to take advantage of some hesitant Chesterfield defending.

Craig Davies thought he had won it for John Sheridan's men when he slotted home in front of the travelling fans at the Leppings Lane end with six minutes to play.

But Tudgay was quickest when his penalty was saved by Tommy Lee to blast home the rebound and set up the dramatic shootout:
