It’s possible that the Proact meeting of the two clubs, on Saturday April 14th, could have plenty riding on it.

Another local rivalry resumes much earlier, Chesterfield visiting Notts County on Saturday 12th August in their second League Two fixture of the season.

The festive period will feature two home games, Crew Alexandra visiting on Boxing Day before the arrival of Colchester United on 30th December.

New Year’s Day sees Town travel to fellow League Two new boys Coventry City.

Gary Caldwell’s side will end their fixtures at Barnet on Saturday 5th May.
