Notts County will be hoping to bounce back here following the 1-0 National League loss in their previous game against Bromley.
Ben Williamson (64') scored for Bromley.
Their latest results highlight the fact that much respect should be given to the Notts County defence. The Magpies have been miserly, with the tally of goals that have flown into the back of their net over the course of their previous 6 matches standing at 4.
Chesterfield go into this match after a 1-2 National League win versus Halifax in their most recent fixture.
For Chesterfield, the goals were scored by Liam Mandeville (14') and Nathan Tyson (79'). Darren Stephenson (31') was the scorer for Halifax.
The stats don’t lie, and Chesterfield have been scored against in 5 of their last 6 matches, with opponents netting 6 goals overall. In defence, The Spireites can certainly do much better. Such a pattern isn’t assured to follow through into this game, of course.

With a completely healthy squad to choose from, Chesterfield boss James Rowe has zero fitness concerns to speak of ahead of this match.
