Notts County's players celebrate Blair Adams' goal - his first for the club

Notts County goalkeeper Roy Carroll produced an excellent display to help his side pick up a point at League One rivals Chesterfield.

The visitors took the lead when Blair Adams drilled a low shot into keeper Tommy Lee's bottom-left corner.

Georg Margreitter equalised with a header from a corner after the break.

Carroll saved well from Doyle, Daniel Johnson and Dan Gardner as Chesterfield were denied a winner.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"To be fair to the keeper [Roy Carroll], he was sensational and that's why he's an international goalkeeper.

"So fair play to him and Notts County. They've got an early goal and we didn't start the game well.

"Our lads showed a great work ethic and especially second half we've created chance after chance.

"But Notts County have got a very strong defensive record for a reason and you've got to say well done to them."

Notts County manager Shaun Derry told BBC Radio Nottingham:

"I'm just so proud of them. These boys are just an absolute pleasure to manager. What a game it was.

"We got the first goal, then we hit the post and we could have got the second.

"But in the second half Chesterfield had us with our backs to the wall so I can't argue. A draw was a fair result."
