History of the Chesterfield v Tranmere Rovers fixture

Tranmere Rvs. face a trip to Chesterfield at Recreation Ground at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 28 and win only 6 of the 44 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in December 2003, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Division Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Chesterfield's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Spireites have scored 7, a worringly large 13 have been leaked at the other end.

Tranmere Rvs.'s away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in the last six, but with four of them resulting in draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 10 goals for the Rovers, and 6 goals against.

Chesterfield's 51 points from 38 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Tranmere Rvs. are just outside the promotion places, in 3rd, having taken 68 points from 37 games.
