Recent respective form guides

Chesterfield's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Spireites have scored 7, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Bradford City's away form is none too clever either, losing only 1 of the last six, but drawing 4 of them. A generous 9 goals have been both scored and conceded in this period.

Chesterfield see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League One, showing a record of 52 points from their 40 games played so far, Bradford City's 57 points from 40 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position.
