Spireites Visit Bristol Rovers

25 October 2013

Sponsored by

Chesterfield travel to the Memorial Stadium to take on Bristol Rovers in their 14th fixture of the 2013/14 Skybet League Two season.


The Gas are currently 21st in the League 2 table having taken ten points from their opening 13 fixtures, losing 2-1 to Accrington Stanley in their last outing at the Crown Ground.

Rovers finished the 2012/13 campaign in 14th place but without a win in eight games, John Ward's side have struggled in the league this year. 

Chesterfield approach this fixture on the back of a 2-2 draw at home to York City on Tuesday night, coming back from a two-goal deficit to earn a point at the Proact Stadium.

Without a win in five games, Chesterfield are currently second in the League 2 table and will be looking for a return to form against the Gas on Saturday.

Bristol Rovers last hosted the Spireites in November last year, where a late goal from Tom Eaves sealed a 3-2 victory for the Pirates.

David Clarkson serves the second game of his three-match ban on Saturday and will not be available.

Drew Talbot (abdominal) is the only player unavailable for selection on Saturday, a recurrence of his injury means the full-back sits out against the Gas.
