Chesterfield travel to take on Darlington at Balfour Webnet Darlington Aren on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground.

The last time the two teams met at Darlington was back in January 2001, over five years ago, as the visitors ran out cosy 0 - 3 winners in a League Division Three match.
