Chesterfield v Portsmouth

Chesterfield failed to increase their advantage at the top of League Two to four points as they were held to a goalless draw by Portsmouth.

Pompey went close when Jake Jervis's strike was pushed on to the post by Tommy Lee, before Wes Fogden was denied when he was one-on-one with the keeper.

The Spirites best chance came in stoppage time when Trevor Carson did well to save Marc Richards's header.

The point earned means Pompey are now seven clear of the relegation zone.
