Chesterfield 1-1 Oldham Athletic

Oldham's Jonathan Forte scored his eighth goal of the season as the Latics took their unbeaten run to 11 games with a draw at Chesterfield.

Forte put Oldham ahead from the penalty spot early in the second half after Danny Philliskirk was fouled by Spireites defender Georg Margreitter.

But the home side equalised shortly after when Sam Clucas latched onto a ball from Gary Roberts and fired home.

Forte almost won it late on but could not get a decisive touch in a scramble.

Oldham manager Lee Johnson told BBC Radio Manchester:

Johnson on Chesterfield v Oldham

"I think it was a great game. It was very end to end, it had pace, it had power.

"Both teams counter-attacked swiftly and there was chances probably every two or three minutes.

"Both teams were confident that their players could go and produce. Many performances on that pitch were good."

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"A draw was probably a fair result. It's just disappointing to conceded a goal just after half-time.

"We're making the same mistakes at the moment and that's what's costing us more points than we've got.

"We're a nice team, we're a good team but we want to win more games and we're not doing it."
