Chesterfield 1-1 Blackpool

Relegation-threatened Chesterfield and Blackpool battled to a draw at the Proact Stadium.

The visitors took the lead eight minutes into the second half when Brad Potts' 20-yard shot was deflected past goalkeeper Tommy Lee.

Four minutes later the Spireites were level as substitute Jay O'Shea found the top corner from 25 yards.

Blackpool captain David Ferguson was sent off late on, picking up a second yellow for pulling back Gboly Ariyibi.

The Seasiders slipped back into the relegation zone following Shrewsbury's victory, while Chesterfield are only three points above the drop zone.
