Spireites Host The Gulls

14 February 2014

Chesterfield will host Torquay United on Saturday afternoon in their 31st fixture of the 2013/14 League 2 campaign.

Overview

Paul Cook's side approach Saturday's game on the back of a six-match unbeaten run in all competitions, drawing 1-1 with second place Scunthorpe United in their last outing at Glanford Park.

The draw meant Chesterfield maintained a three-point lead at the top of the Sky Bet League 2 table with 16 league games left to play.

Torquay United come to the Proact Stadium in indifferent form, taking seven points from their last six league games - losing 2-1 at home to 24th place Northampton Town in their most recent fixture at Plainmoor on Tuesday. 

The Gulls are 23rd in the League 2 table, two points from safety with a game in hand over 22nd place Wycombe Wanderers. The Devon side have averaged one point per game in the league this season and will be looking to improve their form as they chase Football League survival.

Chesterfield and Torquay United meet for the second time this season after the Spireites prevailed 2-0 in the reverse fixture at Plainmoor. Goals from Ollie Banks and Jay O'Shea sealed the points for Paul Cook's side in November.
