The youth team drew 2-2 against high-flying Doncaster Rovers at the weekend.

The young Spireites started well and created a number of half-chances before Doncaster took the lead against the run of play.

After trailing at the break, Chesterfield made a strong start to the second period and equalised when Javanne Smith slotted home from around ten yards after some good inter-play with Matt Fuertado.

The visitors regained the lead following a long ball, but the Spireites showed good character to come back again with George Wilkinson levelling the scores.

Coach Neil Cluxton said: "It was a very encouraging performance against a top of the league side. We are slowly turning the corner and hopefully we will continue to progress in the coming weeks."

Spireites: Wharton, Garwood, Gibson, Brook, Wilkinson, Wild, Tansley, Geeves (Netherwood), Smith, Fuertado, Turner.

Unused substitutes: England, Papworth, Clogg, Barlow.
