Match action: Chesterfield 1 Notts County 1

On loan defender Georg Margreitter’s first goal for Chesterfield earned the Spireites a point at home to Notts County in an enthralling derby clash.

Blair Adams had put Notts in to a half-time lead but Chesterfield fought-back with a much-improved second half performance.

Ian Evatt made a crucial clearance off the line from substitute Shaun Harrod before the striker came to the Magpies’ rescue to deny Margreitter a second.

The Spireites threw everything at their near neighbours - recording 16 efforts - but came across former Manchester United keeper Roy Carroll in inspired form.
