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.
