Chesterfield complete their pre-season programme on Tuesday night as an XI from Premier League champions Leicester City visit the Proact.

The match will see a strong side made up of first-team players turn out for the hosts, after a mainly fringe squad secured a clean sheet in a 0-0 draw at Buxton over the weekend.


Both home and away fans can buy tickets ahead of the 7:30pm kick-off, just head to the Proact ticket office. 

Tickets for the game are priced at £12 for adults and £6 for concessions. Fans can also purchase online here and pick up on the night.

The countdown is almost at an end for the 2016/17 kick-off, and first-team coach Chris Morgan spoke of his final friendly expectations: "With the game a Tuesday before the Saturday game it will be used like a final training session, putting last little bits and bobs to bed. 

"Again, it will be used for game time with Saturday in mind. The majority of stuff we do this week leading up to the Oxford game will be done behind closed doors, the final little bits like your set plays, that's because you always want that little bit of surprise.

"There will be run outs for the majority of the first team, but we'll be mindful of their minutes making sure they are all primed and ready to go on Saturday."
