The Spireites are preparing to face Sheffield Wednesday at the Proact tomorrow in their opening public pre-season game.

The fixture, which kicks off at 1pm, will see some new faces in the Chesterfield line-up following Danny Wilson's summer recruitment drive.

Ryan Fulton, Paul McGinn, Jon Nolan, Reece Mitchell, Kristian Dennis and Ched Evans have all been brought in since the end of last season. Depending on fitness, some of the new signings are set to feature.

The Spireites went down to a 4-3 defeat in a private practice match against Cypriot side Apollon in Hungary on Wednesday. Jay O'Shea (pen), Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Dennis were all on target.

Chesterfield will be up against a strong Wednesday side who narrowly missed out on promotion to the Premier League last season, suffering a defeat at the hands of Hull City in the Championship play-off final.

Admission to the game costs £12 for adults and £6 for concessions. A 16-page programme will be on sale, costing £1.50. It features a centre spread fixture list, pre-season photo gallery and an interview with new signing Mitchell.
