Roy Carroll turned in a man of the match display to help Notts County leave the Proact Stadium with a point in the reverse fixture with Chesterfield.

The Spireites peppered their Nottinghamshire neighbours’ goal - 16 attempts to their opponents’ seven - but found the former Manchester United man in top form.

Blair Adams’ drilled shot put Notts ahead on 15 minutes before Georg Margreitter levelled for Chesterfield with a bullet of a header just after the hour-mark.

Carroll then denied Eoin Doyle, Daniel Johnson and Dan Gardner as the Spireites piled on the pressure in an attempt to find the winner in front of 7,500 at the Proact.
