FootyMAD's Sheffield Wednesday match preview

History of the Sheffield Wednesday v Chesterfield fixture

Chesterfield face a trip to Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough on Saturday afternoon, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 15 games played, Spireites have recorded 2 wins, and Sheff. Wed. have come away with 7 victories.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in December 2003, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Division Two match.
