Half-Time Report: Scunthorpe United holding Chesterfield in FA Cup replay

Chesterfield and Scunthorpe play out a goalless first half in their FA Cup third-round replay.

Neither side could break the deadlock in the opening 45 minutes of the FA Cup third-round replay between Chesterfield and Scunthorpe United this evening.

Having needed to make a number of impressive saves in the reverse fixture, Sam Slocombe picked up where he left off to deny Tendayi Darikwa with a fine stop in just the first minute.

Slocombe was called into action again inside the opening 10 minutes, but this time it was a more comfortable stop for the keeper as he denied Eoin Morgan's strike.

Doyle had a better chance soon after having been played through on goal by Gary Roberts, drawing another good save despite stumbling at a vital moment.

Gary McSheffrey looked to alleviate the pressure in style with a 45-yard lobbed effort that Tommy Lee had to be alert to, but the hosts were soon back on the front foot and tested Slocombe again through Armand Gnanduillet.

Lyle Taylor threatened to give the visitors the lead just before the half-hour mark when he had space to shoot, but his lob was disappointing and went a long way over the bar.

Neither side could find the breakthrough in the closing stages of the half as they went into the break all square.
