History of the Chesterfield v Morecambe fixture

Chesterfield prepare to entertain Morecambe at Recreation Ground on Saturday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. Out of their two previous meetings, the Spireites have drawn one game and lost the other.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Recreation Ground was just last season, in November 2007, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2-2 draw in a League Two match.
