Loan watch: Pools denied at the death
Noble was named as part of Neale Cooper' s starting XI, partnering Mags' fan Steve Howard up front at home to Doncaster Rovers.
Rovers have themselves endured a tricky start to life back in League One, winning just twice at home following relegation.
After a much-improved display, 'Pools took a 70th minute lead when full-back Neil Austin blasted home a penalty for Cooper's side.
The win looked in the bag for the Teessiders, until a 89th minute far-post header from Donny skipper Rob Jones snatched a share of the spoils.
Noble had long since departed, withdrawn in the 58th minute to be replaced by fellow loanee, Middlesbrough's Charlie Wyke.
Pools were also beaten in midweek - a game Vital Sunderland attended in order to get our football fix - a penalty shoot-out defeat at the hands of Bradford City seeing Hartlepool exit the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.
After a goalless 90 minutes, Noble missed his, and Pools' third penalty, Bradford running out 3-2 winners.
Ben Wilson was an unused substitute for Chesterfield again on Saturday, the Spireites losing 2-1 at home to Dagenham & Redbridge thanks to a Sam Williams brace.
