Chesterfield remain top of League Two despite drawing 1-1 at Bury to go a fifth game without a win.

Craig Davies gave the Spireites a 20th-minute lead with his 16th goal of the season - and his first since New Year`s Day. Ryan Lowe equalised with his 20th within a minute of the second half starting.

The league leaders had Deane Smalley sent off for a second yellow card with five minutes remaining.

Davies scored when Efe Sodje`s slip allowed him to run through and beat Cameron Belford.

Bury were level within 30 seconds of the restart as Lowe beat the offside trap to convert from Steve Schumacher's through ball.

Smalley was then sent off before Lee denied Lenell John-Lewis to secure a point.
