Preview: Spireites vs Stags

27 September 2013

Our team make their first competitive visit to the Proact Stadium on Saturday, as we lock horns with arch-rivals Chesterfield (1.00pm).


Both Chris Clements (knee) and Martin Riley (suspended) will not feature in the sell-out match at the Proact Stadium.


Our side surged into the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off zone with a stunning 3-0 win over Northampton Town last weekend. 

Sam Clucas was on-target against the Cobblers, which extended his superb goal-scoring streak to four consecutive matches. 

Meanwhile, Ritchie Humphreys’ strike maintained the Spireites’ grip on top spot as they earned a hard-fought 1-0 success at Oxford United. 

Paul Cook’s side have won seven out of their eight league matches this term, and boast the tightest defence in the division, having shipped just three goals.


Our last meeting with Chesterfield was an FA Cup First Round clash at Saltergate in November 2008. 

Jamie Winter’s brace and a strike by Jamie Ward helped The Spireites record a 3-1 win. Nathan Arnold was our scorer. 

The last time we beat the Spireites was in January 2003, when Liam Lawrence’s memorable last-gasp winner earned us a 2-1 success. 

The last 0-0 draw between the two teams was at Field Mill in April 1985.

In total, there have been 64 previous meetings between the two sides in the Football League. Our record is: Won 25, Drew 14, Lost 25.


This match is a sell-out in all areas. 

Supporters who aren't in possession of a match ticket should not travel to the Proact Stadium.
