Chesterfield have endured a tough time in recent encounters with their Posh rivals.

Peterborough United have come out on top in six of the last eight meetings of the clubs.

The most famous of those was probably the Johnstone Paints Trophy final at Wembley in 2014, when the Posh won 3-1.

That game had plenty of action and controversy, including a sending off for violent conduct and a debateable penalty.

Chesterfield last beat Peterborough in December 2014, in another thriller.

An Eoin Doyle double and Armand Gnanduillet’s goal gave Town a 3-2 victory.

There was more controversy when the sides met in February of this year at the Proact, Posh having two sent off but still winning 1-0.

And had it not been for a magnificent Tommy Lee save from his opposite number Ben Alnwick it would have been 2-0.

In March 2015 Chesterfield dominated proceedings but lost to a Michael Bostwick goal.

Peterborough yet again had a man sent off, Ricardo Santos getting his marching orders for a second yellow.

And going a bit further back, Peteborough fans will remember this one well, clinching promotion at Saltergate in 1991.

They had to do it the hard way, coming back from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 and escape from Division Four.
