TICKETS for Chesterfield’s Wembley trip for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy go on general sale today after season-ticket-holders and loyalty-card-holders had their pick last week.

Opponents for the March 25 showpiece Swindon Town won their seventh straight League Two match at Hereford last weekend to move into the automatic promotion places.

Chesterfield meanwhile moved up to 22nd spot in League One after their victory over Sheffield Wednesday, their best spot since Bonfire Night. All eyes tonight will be on the Scunthorpe v Walsall game.

The two opponents sit in the two places immediately above John Sheridan’s side and Spireites connections will be hoping for anything other than a home win as that would open up the gap to safety to six points.

Rochdale, 23rd, travel to leaders Charlton with a home win hoped for at the B2net.

Saturday’s opponents, Notts County, dismissed manager Martin Allen after their defeat at Hartlepool.

The Spireites are hoping loan right-back James Hurst will be fit after an ankle problem.
