CFCDonny3

Chesterfield moved a point closer to securing League 1 survival with a 1-1 draw against Doncaster Rovers at the Proact Stadium.

Doncaster headed to North Derbyshire in desperate need of a victory to keep their own hopes of staying up alive and got off to the perfect start when Tommy Rowe fired home from a corner in the sixth minute.

But Gboly Ariyibi’s 18th minute leveller was ultimately enough to earn the Spireites a draw that moves them on to the vital 50-point mark and five points clear of relegation with just three games remaining.

Chesterfield slumped to a third consecutive defeat as Doncaster Rovers exacted revenge on former boss Dean Saunders with a 3-0 victory at the Keepmoat Stadium on Tuesday evening.

It was a hugely disappointing display from the Spireites, who failed to register a single shot on target all night as goals from Nathan Tyson,  Andy Williams and Cameron Stewart earned the South Yorkshire club their fourth win in five in comfortable fashion.

There was late drama at the Proact Stadium as Chesterfield fought back from 2-0 down to salvage a point against Doncaster Rovers on 31st January 2015.

The visitors got off to the perfect start as they raced into a 2-0 lead after just nine minutes courtesy of strikes from James Coppinger and Andy Butler.

But a spirited Spireites fightback saw Eoin Doyle pull one back on the stroke of half time. Jimmy Ryan’s 87th equaliser then earned Chesterfield a good point and ensured they remained in fifth place at the end of January.
