Town named an unchanged starting line-up. Jack Lester started for Chesterfield.

After 9 minutes Hudson hit the post from a free kick with the 'keeper stranded.

With Town beginning the have the better of the game Coulson shot narrowly wide after 20 minutes.

Town took the lead when Tommy Wright latched on to a ball by Peacock, took his time and finished well past the 'keeper.

On 40 a glancing header by Akpro forced a full length save from the keeper.

Just before half time Colgan produced a fingertip save to deny Lester.

Akpro found the roof of the Pontoon net early in the second half with a turn and shot on the edge of the box.

Lester pulled a goal back on 65 minutes when he directed a header into the net after a great cross by Demontagnac.

Lester added a second with a poacher's goal in the six yard box after Town missed a header.

Then Akpro rounded the 'keeper but took the ball wide and hit the side netting.

With both sides looking for a winner the match went end to end. Gritton then missed a good chance to give Chesterfield the lead, then Grimsby had a great penalty appeal turned down.

Town had some late chances but in the end did not get a deserved victory.
