History of the Northampton Town v Chesterfield fixture

Chesterfield pack their bags to visit Northampton Town at Sixfields on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 17 games played, Spireites have recorded 6 wins, and Northampton have come away with 7 victories.

The previous match played between the two at Sixfields was within the last three years, in April 2007, the Cobblers carving out a narrow 1 - 0 victory in a League One match.
