Match preview: Chesterfield (A)

24 March 2016

All the key information ahead of Saturday's game

An Easter Saturday trip to the Proact Stadium is next on the agenda for Fleetwood Town, where Chesterfield await Steven Pressley’s Cod Army side.

Town travel to Derbyshire looking to respond in a winning fashion having suffered a 2-0 defeat against Barnsley at Highbury last Saturday.

The Tykes took the lead in the 47th minute when Town defender Joe Davis looped a header over Chris Maxwell to score an own goal, before Joe Scowen diverted Adam Hammill’s corner into the net to ensure the three-points with five
minutes to play.

Meanwhile, Chesterfield picked up a point on their travels away at Scunthorpe United, as Jamal Campbell-Ryce had a debut to remember, netting an equaliser on the hour-mark to cancel out Paddy Madden’s first half strike.

One to watch

Lee Novak has enjoyed a fruitful season in front of goal during his loan stay at Chesterfield, with the striker scoring 13 goals so far.

Born in Newcastle upon Tyne, Novak’s youth career consisted of spells at Wallsend Boys Club and Gretna, turning professional with the latter in 2006.

Novak didn’t make an appearance at the Scottish club, and dropped down to the English non-league level, turning out for Newcastle Blue Star and Gateshead.

After scoring 16 goals in 18 games at Gateshead, Novak was signed by Huddersfield Town in July 2009.

Novak would go onto spend a further five-years at the Terriers, a spell in which he helped Huddersfield gain promotion to the Championship, via the Play-Offs in May 2012.

He departed the John Smith’s Stadium in the summer of 2013 in favour of a move to Birmingham City.

At St Andrew’s, the 27-year-old scored ten times in 59 outings, with the forward signing a season-long loan deal at Chesterfield back in August.
