Match Previews

PREVIEW: Mansfield Town

24 November 2017

It's the one you've all been waiting for! The Spireites head to the One Call Stadium tomorrow to take on local rivals Mansfield Town (1pm) in a Sky Bet League Two clash. Here's our big match preview......


Tickets are now off sale at the ticket office and online, there will be no tickets available on the day of the game.

Team news

Mansfield will have striker Lee Angol back in their matchday squad, after the striker returned to training earlier this week following injury.

Scott Wiseman returns from suspension for the Spireites and manager Jack Lester has reported no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash in Nottinghamshire.

Manager – Steve Evans

Evans has been in charge of the Stags since November 2016, taking over the role from Adam Murray. Previously a striker the Glaswegian played for a host of clubs in Scotland before retiring in 1986.

His first venture into management was with Stamford before rising up the leagues to manage Boston on two occasions before being appointed Crawley Town manager.

From there he went onto manage Rotherham where he achieved promotion to the Championship and was able to keep them in the division in their first season back. However, in September 2015 he left the club and in October of the same year joined Leeds.

He was sacked from his role there in May 2016 before joining current side Mansfield.

One to watch – Danny Rose

Mansfield's main man this season has been striker Danny Rose who is one of the top scorers in Sky Bet League Two with nine strikes to his name.

Still only 23, he broke through at Barnsley before having loan spells at Bury in 2014. He then signed permanently for the club in the same year, scoring 18 times in 69 league games.

In 2016 he then joined current club Mansfield, for whom he has appeared over 50 times for.

Head to head

Tomorrow’s meeting will be the 76th between the two rivals and it’s the Spireites who have the better overall record, which stands as follows: -

Mansfield: - 28 (wins)

Draws: - 17

Chesterfield – 30 (wins)

Lester will have fond memories of Town’s last league win at Field Mill in September 2007 where he scored the third of our three goals that day to seal a 3-1 win. Chesterfield’s other goals came from Gregor Robertson and Jamie Lowry.

From the dugout: -

Having taken part in several of these derbies as a player Lester knows all about the fixture’s significance and how much it means to supporters: -

He said: “You prepare properly for every game but we’re not just going to say that it’s another game, it’s one with a little bit of edge on it and needle and that excites us.

“We like those type of games and I think that the players have the type of character to cope with that and we’ll be going into it looking to win it.

“The players understand the importance of it, every game is important but to say it’s just another game isn’t quite real.”

Can't get to the Mansfield? Fear not you can still follow all the action from the game.

- Live commentary, exclusive to the internet, on iFollow. 

- Minute-by-minute coverage for the club's Twitter page.

- Updates and images from the club's Facebook and Instagram feeds. 

- Stats and reaction across the weekend on the official site.

Match Reports

Spireites Draw at Mansfield

25 November 2017

Chesterfield made it seven points from the last nine available after they drew 2-2 with local rivals Mansfield Town this afternoon

Joe Rowley opened the scoring for the visitors before Hayden White's equaliser. Andy Kellett put Chesterfield back in front in the second half but Zander Diamond rescued a point for the Stags late on. 

Mansfield enjoyed the majority of the possession early on, creating chances but failing to open the scoring. Rhys Bennett hooked over from close range in the opening minutes before two Jacob Mellis chances went begging. 

He first fired straight at Joe Anyon before driving his next effort wide. Omari Sterling-James meanwhile also saw a shot miss the target for the Stags.

Despite the hosts' early pressure it was the Spireites who took the lead through Rowley on 14 minutes. Kellett laid the ball off to him and the wide man did the rest, curling the ball home left footed.

It didn't take long for Mansfield to find an equaliser though as they scored just twelve minutes later.
Chesterfield lost the ball in midfield and their opponents seized on possession. The ball was played through into the path of White who fired home to make it 1-1.

There was meanwhile a late chance for the Spireites at the back end of the first half, with Kellett firing wide but Jack Lester's side were probably relieved to go into the break all square.

Chesterfield came out firing in the second half though and they were soon back in front. Kristian Dennis, usually the man scoring the goals, turned supplier and picked out Kellett in the box who was able to head home just before the hour mark.

It was what the Spireites deserved for a thoroughly impressive start to the second half.

Before that Dennis had rifled a shot against the bar with a brilliant effort, before Louis Reed's driven shot from the edge of the box was denied by Conrad Logan in the Mansfield goal.

Lester's men continued to push for more, and almost added a third through Dennis who tested Logan again, before Jerome Binnom-Williams' free header from a corner was straight at the goalkeeper.

Chesterfield had dominated the second half but they were punished for not finding a third goal as Mansfield equalised again with just two minutes remaining.

A cross from the right looped into the area and found Stags skipper Diamond who was able to head past Anyon to make things level.

Mansfield had a half chance to then win the game in injury time. Substitute Alfie Potter got into the box and was able to fashion a chance for himself but he skewed it over the bar as things finished all square.

Mansfield: Logan, Bennett, Diamond, MacDonald, Mellis, White, Hunt, Sterling-James, Hamilton, Byrom, Rose

Subsitutes: Olejnik (gk), Pearce, Anderson, Atkinson, Spencer, Potter, Butcher.

Chesterfield: Anyon, Barry, Hird, Evatt, Binnom-Williams, Weir, McCourt, Rowley, Reed, Kellett, Dennis

Substitutes: Parkin (gk), Wiseman, Mitchell, O'Grady, Dimaio, De Girolamo, Maguire

Attendance: 7,525 (1646 from Chesterfield)
