Football: Carson's heroics lift Dowie.
Last night's game at Saltergate finished 3-3 after extra time but the Addic won 4-3 on penalties after goalkeeper Scott Carson, on loan from Liverpool, denied Derek Niven and Mark Allott from the spot.
Roy McFarland's feisty League One strugglers had dumped Wolves, Manchester City and West Ham out in the three previous rounds.
"There is a massive sense of relief," said Dowie. "It was har and I know I would have taken some flak if we had lost.
"But you don't become a Premiership manager unless you're prepared to take flak.
"Roy has got Chesterfield very well organised and they gave us a hell of a game."
