Chesterfield’s League 1 season continued with a draw against Doncaster at the Proact Stadium on Tuesday.

A one-one draw with fellow strugglers Doncaster, who do looked doomed, moved Chesterfield a little closer to safety.

Doncaster made the perfect start with Tommy Rowe giving them a sixth-minute lead but Chesterfield were level on 18-minutes when Gboly Ariyibi followed up after Donny ‘keeper Remi Matthews could only parry Jay O’Shea’s effort to leave the Spireites five-points clear of trouble.



Here’s a round up of the League 1 action from the other games played in midweek….

These were the other results.

Tuesday 19th April 2016
Barnsley 1-0 Peterborough
Burton 1-1 Wigan
Chesterfield 1-1 Doncaster
Coventry 1-0 Bradford
Crewe 1-1 Colchester
Millwall 1-0 Fleetwood
Rochdale 1-1 Gillingham
Scunthorpe 2-1 Bury
Shrewsbury 1-2 Sheff Utd
Southend 0-1 Oldham
Walsall 1-1 Swindon

A top of the table battle between Burton and Wigan (one-one) at the Pirelli Stadium saw both retain the automatic promotion places, the Latics leading the way with Walsall (one-one) missing the chance to close in on them when they drew at the Banks’s Stadium against Swindon.

This automatic promotion battle could go all the way!

A play-off battle is also likely to go to the wire but Millwall (one-nil) are almost assured of a place following a one-nil win over relegation threatened Fleetwood.

Bradford (one-nil) dropped points when beaten at Coventry with Gillingham (one-one) just about clinging on to the final place at the moment but Barnsley (one-nil) are right on their coattails after the Oakwell win against Peterborough.

Oldham’s (one-nil) win at Southend leaves them looking good for survival now but Shrewsbury (two-one) are still very much in trouble with that Sheffield United win keeping alive faint, albeit unlikely, hopes the Blades have of a play-off place.

Colchester’s (one-one) draw at already relegated Crewe leaves the U’s almost confirmed as joining them in going down with Chesterfield (one-one) keeping themselves away from trouble whereas leaving Doncaster on the brink.
