Chesterfield sealed their League One play-off spot despite a home defeat against champions Bristol City.

Rochdale's 3-2 loss to MK Dons means the Spireites can now finish no lower than sixth in the table.

Chesterfield's best chance saw winger Gary Roberts hit the crossbar with a dipping shot from 25 yards.
