Fans excited ahead of Spireites clash

23 September 2013

Supporters are eagerly looking forward to Saturday’s mouth-watering local derby at fierce rivals Chesterfield.

The clash is our first ever visit to the Spireites’ Proact Stadium for a competitive fixture, and the first since we made our stunning return to the Football League.

Our side currently sit in fifth position in the Sky Bet League Two table, and go into the match on a fabulous seven-match unbeaten run.

Nevertheless, Chesterfield have also enjoyed a near-perfect start to the new campaign, having won seven of their first eight matches to go top of the table.

Over the years, this fixture has provided many moments of sheer ecstasy, jubilation and delight.

Who can forget Liam Lawrence’s last-gasp winner in a thrilling tussle at Saltergate in 2003, or Steve Wilkinson’s hat-trick against The Spireites in 1994?

“Everyone is really looking forward to this weekend and hopefully we’re going to get the three points,” said one supporter.

“It’s something we’ve looked forward to for an awful long time,” added another. “We’ve had five years of hurt and worry, but by the time we get to Saturday, we want to win.”
