Chesterfield 1-1 Doncaster Rovers

Doncaster's League One survival hopes were dented by a 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Chesterfield.

The visitors took the lead when Tommy Rowe converted Gary McSheffrey's corner after six minutes.

The Spireites levelled through Gboly Ariyibi's finish after Remi Matthews parried Jay O'Shea's effort.

Doncaster, who are five points adrift of safety with three games to play, had chances to win the game through Andy Williams and Andy Butler.

Danny Wilson's Chesterfield are now five points clear of the bottom four.
