Promotion-chasing Chesterfield were held to a goalless draw by local rivals Mansfield Town.

Marc Richards missed the best chance of the first half for the Spireites, rounding goalkeeper Alan Marriott but having his effort cleared off the line.

Richards and Mason Bennett both had good opportunities saved by Marriott after the break.

Ollie Palmer almost won it for the Stags in stoppage time but could only shoot wide from six yards.

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"My opinion on the game was that both teams had chances, but I never felt we were in any danger until the last five or ten minutes of the game.

"At this stage of the season everyone wants to win and cement what you're doing. Sometimes you just have to be calm.

"It's a point towards where we want to be."
