Chesterfield 0-0 Aldershot

Chesterfield and relegation-threatened Aldershot were involved in a dull goalless draw at the Proact Stadium.

The result keeps the Shots unbeaten under new manager Andy Scott and two points above the League Two drop zone.

Keeper Jamie Young kept out efforts from Spireites trio Marc Richards, Neal Trotman and Jordan Clark.

And the visitors could have snatched all three points late on, but Sonny Bradley's goal-bound header was cleared off the line by Danny Whitaker.


Chesterfield manager Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"{We were) Very poor in the first half, never got going at all and we couldn't handle them.

"(The) Young lads I threw in at the deep end, it was a little bit too much for them early on. Aldershot, physically, had too much for us in the middle part of the pitch.

"We started the second half really well. We had two or three shots in the space of two or three minutes, we felt possibly we'd go on and win the game. (But) On the balance of the game, it's probably a fair result.

"At the minute, defensively we're not going a great deal wrong in terms of goals conceded, but we're not scoring."

Aldershot manager Andy Scott told BBC Surrey:

"After the first half we should have been in front. We were totally dominant in the first 45 minutes and I was really pleased.

"We created plenty of chances and crosses into the box. It was a really good performance after such a big effort on Saturday and I am delighted.

"I couldn't be happier. If the players continue to improve at the current rate, then there a things to look forward to here."
