Stevenage   0 - 0   Chesterfield

Stevenage 0-0 Chesterfield

Stevenage 0-0 Chesterfield

Chesterfield saw their lead at the top of League Two reduced to one point after they were held by Stevenage.

The hosts dominated the first half but could not score as visiting goalkeeper Tommy Lee denied Stacy Long, while Chris Holroyd shot over the crossbar.

The Spireites improved after the break and top goalscorer Craig Davies had a chance to win the match but he headed into the side netting from close range.

Derek Niven and Davies both missed late on as the hosts held on for a draw.


Stevenage manager Graham Westley told BBC Three Counties Radio:
"We are really disappointed. Over the 90 minutes we have been the dominant side, the side with the better play, the side with the better chances.

"They were always going to be stronger in the second half because of our dominance in the first half. I think most neutrals would have gone away thinking we were the better side this afternoon.

"We have the second best defensive record in the league after today.. Any decent side doesn't concede a lot of goals."

Chesterfield boss John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I'm pleased we got something from the game and showed another part to our game.

"Kept a clean sheet which was pleasing.

"We had to work today. We had a great chance to win the game."
