Bristol Rovers 0-0 Chesterfield
Bristol Rovers and Chesterfield played out a dull draw that extended both sides' winless runs in League Two.
John-Joe O'Toole shot over for Rovers before Eoin Doyle missed two superb chances for the visitors.
Spirerites striker Gary Roberts then forced a save from Steve Mildenhall, before Doyle received a second yellow for fouling Alefe Santos.
Chesterfield are now winless in six league games, while Rovers are without a victory in nine.
The visitors have now dropped out of the top three, but are separated from third-placed Fleetwood only by goals scored.
The Pirates remain one point above the relegation zone.
VIEWS FROM THE DRESSING ROOM
Bristol Rovers manager John Ward told BBC Radio Bristol:
"I thought it was a fantastic effort from the team and the supporters.
"These supporters acknowledge that we are young and are in a tough situation at the moment.
"Certainly today we've come across a team that have taken the season by storm at the start.
"We've given them a really good game and matched them in most parts of the pitch."
Chesterfield manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"You come away from home, you want to win, we're dying to win. We know we're not on a good run.
"Good runs are like bad runs, they spread confidence and they drain confidence.
"It's not so much that we're playing with fear because it's game that we totally dominated.
"I'm not being disrespectful in any shape or form to John and his team because they worked hard for the result, but unfortunately today when we did need to score the goal we just didn't have that quality that we needed."
