FootyMAD's Bournemouth match preview

History of the Bournemouth v Chesterfield fixture

Chesterfield face a trip to Bournemouth at Dean Court on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Spireites will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them taste defeat on 10 occassions, and draw 6, from the 17 games played.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2004, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a League Division Two match.
