Chesterfield 3-5 Huddersfield: Match Report - view commentary, squad, and statistics of the game as it happened.Wells treble rescues TerriersHuddersfield caretaker manager Mark Lillis saw his side stage a dramatic Capital One Cup comeback to beat Chesterfield 5-3 after extra-time at the Proact Stadium, with Nahki Wells netting a hat-trick.Ritchie Humphreys and Ollie Banks fired the League One side into a two-goal lead at the interval and although Wells scored twice either side of Eoin Doyle's third, Huddersfield were going out until Tommy Lee let a Jon Stead shot squirm under his body in stoppage time.Wells and Joe Lolley completed the fightback in the first period of extra-time to give Huddersfield the boost they needed after their 4-0 home mauling to Bournemouth at the weekend, which led to the exit of boss Mark Robins.Chesterfield dominated the first half and went ahead in the 32nd minute when Humphreys planted a header from 12 yards inside Joe Murphy's right-hand post.Wells missed a great chance to level in the 39th minute and Chesterfield scored again on the stroke of half-time when Banks, who had only just replaced the injured Humphreys, curled in a 25-yard shot.The visitors replied in the 58th minute when Wells headed in from 10 yards but Chesterfield restored their two-goal cushion in the 72nd minute as Doyle pounced from close range.Wells again gave Huddersfield hope by converting an 84th-minute penalty after Stead had been tripped, before Lee's mistake took the tie into extra-time.Wells completed his hat-trick in the 94th minute when Lee could only parry a shot from Stead and Lolley punished a defensive error in the 98th minute to settle a pulsating contest
