Chesterfield 0-0 Yeovil Town

Chesterfield ended a three-match losing run with a hard-fought goalless draw at home to League One strugglers Yeovil.

Kieffer Moore wasted two chances for the visitors, without a win in seven league games, including a header that hit the legs of home keeper Tommy Lee.

Chesterfield's top scorer Eoin Doyle shot straight at Glovers goalkeeper Jed Steer early in the second half.

A mistake by Liam Davis almost gifted the Spireites a goal, but Doyle's shot was parried by Steer.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"I think you've got to remember we're just on the back of four defeats.

"People don't like the truth but today at times we looked nervous in the game.

"We just didn't look like we had that fluidity in our play because defensively I thought we were very good.

"I thought we were excellent at the back and it was a case of could we score but I just don't think that looked likely today."

Yeovil manager Gary Johnson told BBC Somerset:

"It was important that we came here solid. We've seen a couple of games that they have played, even their last one they started very bright against Swindon.

"The crowd get behind them, they get runs and attacks and we had three new players in the team so we had to blood them in as best we could.

"So we thought we'd have a bit of a position with strength and then try to keep the ball and break on them. Again we had the first couple of chances - Keith Lamar's header and a shot or two.

"So although you're never happy with the one point because there's three points on it, of course as long as you win your next home game then that's not a bad point from our position."
