The in-form youth team head to Shrewsbury Town this evening as they take on the Shrews in the semi final of the Midland Flootlit Cup.

All supporters are welcome to attend the match in Shropshire, with free admission on the night at Shrewsbury Sports Village.

The Spireites reached the last four after a 4-2 home win over Burton Albion back in September, while Shrewsbury booked their date with the Spireites after a convincing 13-0 triumph against Chasetown.

Speaking before the match youth team coach Mark Smith emphasized the importance of the game to his team.

"Every semi final is important," said Smith. "We've got the chance to get to a cup final and we'll be playing on their first team ground, which will be a good experience for our lads, so we should be looking forward to it. Hopefully we'll go there and give a good account of ourselves. 

"I expect that they'll be useful, especially on their own patch. We've got to go there and respect the opposition as we always do, but my main focus is on our team and how we play.

"We'll put a few players back into the side who were missing on Saturday, so we'll go over there and make a good fist of it.

"We're into that final stage of the season where these sort of games should lift and excite the players. We've got a lot to play for between now and the end of the season so we'll be trying to get their minds right and be ready for the game."
