Start a group ({) *before* the first footnote in that page (and I  
would \protect'ed anyway).

{\protect\setlength{\skip\footins}{2pt}% <- adjust to your needs
<Paragraph with first footnote in page\footnote{...}>


<Paragraph *after* text in said page>% <- you might need to experiment
}% <-close group

I would be very careful as to how the rest of the chapter behaves.



P.S. I do use manyfoot as well.
