Spireites Travel to Fleetwood

11 October 2013

Chesterfield travel to Highbury Stadium to take on Fleetwood Town in their 11th fixture of the 2013/14 Skybet League Two season.

Overview

The Cod Army are currently second in the League 2 table having taken 21 points from their opening ten fixtures, defeating Bristol Rovers 3-1 in their last league outing at the Memorial Stadium.

Fleetwood followed this victory with a midweek 4-0 win over Crewe Alexandra in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The Lancashire side finished the 2012/13 campaign in 13th place and after a strong start to the current season, Graham Alexander's side will be looking towards automatic promotion this year.

Chesterfield approach this fixture on the back of a 4-3 defeat at Morecambe last weekend, a game that the Spireites were leading 3-0 at the half time break. 

Despite the set-back, Chesterfield remain top of the League 2 table and travelled to the One Call Stadium to defeat local rivals Mansfield Town in the Johstone's Paint Trophy on Tuesday night.

Fleetwood last hosted the Spireites in April this year where goals from Armand Gnanduillet and a Marc Richards brace sealed the 3-1 victory for the Spireites.
