In League One's solitary game Tranmere Rovers edged closer to securing a play-off spot courtesy of a 2-0 victory over Chesterfield.
A partisan Prenton Park crowd will have expected Ronnie Moore's side to have taken the spoils and they did just that thanks to a goal in each half.
Experienced Rovers midfielder John Mullin did the damage in the 21st minute when he made the breakthrough and thereafter it was the home side that always looked most likely.
The points were secured when striker Chris Greenacre added a second in the 73rd minute.
Tranmere are now just five points from an automatic promotion place in sixth position, while Chesterfield remain languished in 19th.
