Ashton Gate the place we always used to fear until one Friday night in January 2005 when the Sky Sports cameras visited and a certain Mark Hudson decided to show his unfulfilled potential and the Spireites took all three points for the first time ever at Brizzle in the League.

Last Season we murdered them, a City side in turmoil with legend Brian Tinnion at the helm and a cracking goal of the season from Kevan Hurst accompanied with a hat-trick from Paul Hall we echoed the season before by coming back to North Derbyshire with the maximum.

This year it's slightly different, we have had a sketchy start picking up a disappointing point at Blackpool on Tuesday night after a poor victory over Rotherham, But we are unbeaten in two and Saturday will be a test for our side.

Squad News: Alan O'Hare limped off on Tuesday night to be replaced by Shane Nicholson not sure the extent of the injury for Saturday so I'll put him as doubtful. Apart from Blathers,Alex Bailey and Gareth Davies things are looking ok for the rest of the squad. Not sure what is happening with Gyorgy Kiss at the minute but we shall wait and see.

Bristol City meanwhile have a few problems with their players two of them Bradley Orr and Steve Brooker have just been released from prison. Both amazingly are included in Saturday's squad. City beat Leyton Orient 2-1 at Ashton Gate on Tuesday night with goals from Enoch Showunmi and Phil Jevons.

Town @ Brizzle City

05/06 L1 W 4-2 Hall (3) Hurst
04/05 L1 W 3-2 Hudson (2) Allison
03/04 L1 L 0-4
02/03 L1 L 0-4
01/02 L1 L 0-3

Point seems likely on Saturday.
