History of the Chesterfield v Barnet fixture

Chesterfield prepare to entertain Barnet at Recreation Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. The visitors have won 3 of the 6 previous games, with the Spireites winning just 2.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Recreation Ground was less than a year ago, in February 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a League Two match.
