Manager Paul Cook is relishing the prospect of facing the Valiants at the Proact on Easter Monday.

The Spireites continue their Easter weekend with the visit of high-flying Port Vale, after an impressive 1-0 victory at the Pirelli Stadium ensured the hopes of an immediate return to the third tier went right to the wire.

Town trail seventh-placed Exeter City by seven points with just six games remaining and the Grecians visit Whittington Moor on the season's final day.

Arguably Chesterfield's best performance under Cook came in the 2-0 win at Vale Park back in December. Although the Spireites' season failed to kick-on as Vale's did.

Speaking after the win over Burton Albion, Paul Cook said: "I've just said to the lads as a team we've done well, they get a little pat on the back but they wake up tomorrow and they've got Port Vale the next day.

"They're a really exciting side, they've got energy throughout the side and Micky is doing a great job there.

"The likelihood is that they'll go up this year. They'll bring a massive following and we'll get a bumper crowd, which is great for everyone.

"At this stage of the season, for a club like ours to have nothing to play for is not right."
