Chesterfield make the trip to Coventry tonight to take on a side who have regained form in recent matches.

The Spireites have had some memorable moments in battles with the Sky Blues in recent years, not least the five goal thriller with is our feature video in today’s flashback.

A crowd of 7,205 watched on at the Proact as the Sky Blues took the three points in March 2015.

Marcus Tudgay gave City the lead before Jay O’Shea equalised, but second-half goals from substitute Sanmi Odelusi and Frank Nouble were enough to hand City three points despite a late reply from Gboly Ariybi.

And who can forget this moment, when Town keeper Tommy Lee bodyslammed a pitch invader who got a little too close.

The Coventry equaliser sparked a mini pitch invasion from visiting fans.

The last time the two sides met at the Richo, this happened, the Sky Blues taking a 1-0 victory.

Chesterfield substitute Mani Dieseruvwe was sent off in the closing stages as Coventry claimed the three points.
