Notts County 0-1 Chesterfield

Drew Talbot's long-range strike was enough to earn ten-man Chesterfield a win at Notts County and maintain their hopes of a play-off place.

The striker, on loan from Luton, gathered a pass, cut inside and lashed the ball over goalkeeper Josh Lillis.

Danny Hall was sent-off late on for the Spireites after picking up his second yellow card of the match.

County missed two good chances with Tommy Lee saving from Jamie Forrester and Mike Edwards shooting wide.
