Chesterfield face a trip to Morecambe at Christie Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to break their duck against the hosts. The only previous meeting between the two sides yielded a draw.

The only previous meeting between Morecambe and Chesterfield at was less than a year ago, in April 2008, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Morecambe's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Shrimps have scored 6, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

Chesterfield's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. While the Spireites have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Morecambe find themselves struggling down in 16th position in the league having picked up 7 points from their 8 matches. Chesterfield see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League Two, showing a record of 9 points from their 8 games played so far,
