Have your say

Chesterfield crashed out of the FA Cup last weekend following a 3-1 defeat to Southend and tomorrow sees them turn their attention to Johnstones Paint Trophy action where they travel to Oldham.

Odds comparison site post that the Spireites are on offer at 5/2 for the away win.

Oldham, who are undefeated in their last eight games in all competitions, go into the game best priced at 6/5 with Boylesports, whilst the draw is available at 5/2 with Betway.

Interestingly, these two met in the same competition last season, as Chesterfield walked away with a 2-1 win over the Latics.

In fact, two of the last three between the two have ended up in the same score line and if you fancy backing a repeat of this, it is best priced at 12/1 with Paddy Power.

Gary Roberts is the club’s top scorer in the league this season, and if punters fancy backing the Spireites number 11 to break the deadlock, he is on offer at 10/1 with Paddy Power to do so.

Roberts to score anytime, and Chesterfield to win, is a double available at 8/1 with the same bookmaker.

Both teams have scored in four of the last five meetings between the two, and if you like the look of that becoming five from six, both teams to find the net tomorrow is best priced at 5/6 with Sky Bet.

Chesterfield are amongst the outsiders to win the competition.

Paul Cook’s men are on offer at 10/1 with Betfred to win the Johnstones Paint Trophy.
