Chris Hackett and Kevin Amankwaah both came back into the side replacing Luke Norris and Ben Tozer.
Stuart Dallas had a shot saved by Tommy Lee on 10 minutes after some good build-up play involving Jacob Blyth and Hackett.
Chesterfield's first real chance of the night didn't come until the 40th minute with Armand Gnaduillet's header failing to find the target.
Kane Ferdinand then had the Cobblers best chance of the first half but headed just over from a Hackett cross.
Ex-Cobblers striker Marc Richards came on for Chesterfield just before the hour mark, replacing Gnaduillet. For the Cobblers Clive Platt came on for Blyth before Dallas made way for Gary Deegan.
A low shot from Ollie Banks was saved by Duke on 75 minutes while after a good break from Aidy Boothroyd's side Joe Widdowson found the side netting.
Ben Tozer came on for Danny Emerton in stoppage time as on the night that the Cobblers re-development plans for Sixfields were approved by Northampton Borough Council the side earned a very creditable point at Chesterfield.
