Luke Norris on the spot to earn a point for Swindon

Luke Norris scored a penalty in the sixth minute of stoppage time as promotion chasing Swindon drew 2-2 with bottom side Chesterfield.
Timi Elsnik had given the home side the lead before Kristian Dennis and Jak McCourt turned it around for Jack Lester's men. That looked to have won it for the Spireites before Norris won and scored the penalty deep into time added on.
Swindon's John Goddard had his goal-bound drive pushed wide by Chesterfield goalkeeper Joe Anyon early on, before Norris' header was cleared off the line.
David Flitcroft's side then took the lead two minutes into the second half when Elsnik struck his third goal of the campaign.
Dennis equalised for Chesterfield 10 minutes later when he calmly slotted the ball across goal into the bottom left corner for his 11th goal of the season.
McCourt then turned the game on its head when arrowed in a shot that flew in off the underside of the crossbar from 30 yards out.
Swindon pushed for a response and deep into stoppage time Norris was adjudged to have been pulled down in the penalty area by Scott Wiseman and the striker calmly slotted the penalty in.
