Shrewsbury   0 - 0   Chesterfield

Highlights - Shrewsbury Town 0-0 Chesterfield

Shrewsbury 0-0 Chesterfield

Shrewsbury Town claimed a well-earned draw after a plucky performance against League Two leaders Chesterfield.

The hosts dominated the majority of the game but failed to convert.

Both Steve Leslie and Tom Bradshaw went close before Craig Disley went one on one with Spireites keeper Tommy Lee but his effort edged inches wide.

Chesterfield came alive when substitute Jack Lester was brought on and they nearly stole a late winner but Deane Smalley missed from six yards out.

Chesterfield's lead at the top of League Two is reduced to three points, while Shrewsbury move up to fourth - just two points shy of the play-offs.


Shrewsbury Town manager Graham Turner told BBC Radio Shropshire: "On the balance of play, and number of efforts we had on goal, we should have had three points.

"Craig Disley had a good chance, and Tom Bradshaw and James Collins both had opportunities. And, although they did have a couple of chances late on, it would have been a smash and grab if they'd scored.

"I feel it's starting to come again for us - the pace of the way we play, the passing. There's that optimism about us again."

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I thought it was a point gained. A draw was a fair result. And it was a good battling point for us.

"No one has been dropped. I just made changes for the way we play.

"Like I've said before, I've got 16 good players and it doesn't worry me who's playing."
