Chesterfield have sold around 16,500 tickets for the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final whilst Paolo Di Canio’s League Two leaders Swindon Town have shifted 27,000 ensuring a bumper pay-day for the two combatants.

The Spireites’ tickets will be withdrawn from sale next Wednesday.

Supporters have until 1pm on March 21 to make sure of their place at Wembley.

Many will be hoping John Sheridan invests a portion of the Wembley windfall in adding to his squad ahead of MK Dons’ visit to the B2net on Saturday.

The manager has desperately been seeking to add two new faces to his squad for the final 10 games and today is the day they are most likely to arrive as he looks to move his side out of the bottom four, with 20th spot being five points away. To reach the accepted safety target of 50 points, Spireites need to notch up 18 in the run-in, the equivalent of six wins, the same number as home fixtures left.

Dons will feature reigning League One player of the month Dean Bowditch and Alan Smith, on-loan from Newcastle.

Gregor Robertson (hamstring) and Jimmy Juan (ankle) have outside chances of being ready for Chesterfield but they’re not likely to be risked.
