Chesterfield prepare to entertain Darlington at Recreation Ground on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Spireites are clearly on top, having won 21 and lost only 6 of the 39 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Recreation Ground was less than a year ago, in April 2009, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Two match.
