Chesterfield Host The Iron

1 November 2013

Chesterfield will host Scunthorpe United on Saturday in their 15th fixture of the 2013/14 League 2 campaign.

Overview

The Spireites have taken three points from six games and will be looking to get back to winning ways against The Iron after drawing consecutive games against York City and Bristol Rovers.

Chesterfield dropped to fourth place in the League 2 table after the goalless draw at the Memorial Stadium last weekend, five places and two points above Saturday's opponents Scunthorpe United.

The Iron approach this fixture having won five of their last eight games. However, their run of form hit a roadblock on Tuesday night, losing 4-1 to York City away from home.

Scunthorpe last visited the Proact Stadium in March 2012 and left resounding winners, with a brace from Jordan Robertson and goals from Josh Walker and Andy Barcham cancelling out an early Craig Westcarr goal in a 4-1 victory for The Iron.
