Jack Lester’s Spireites, who sit bottom of League Two, travel to a Bradford City flying high in the division above them for an FA Cup first round tie.
Lester says that his side can’t get too wrapped up in the occasion.
“It could be an attractive cup tie,” he said.
“Tactically both teams will be looking at the weaknesses and trying to exploit those and we need to go and be on the front foot, not be overawed by it and put on a show, try to win the game. We have to.”

Whilst Lester will obviously keep in mind the strength and quality of Stuart McCall’s Bantams, he wants his men to concentrate on the variable they can affect the most.
“I think we show respect to everyone but we can only control our performance,” he said.
“We do look at the opposition a lot but we don’t share everything with the players – we give the information we think will be enough for them to go and win the game.
“It’s a lot to do with how we perform, how we start games, how well we keep the ball.
“They have strengths that we’ll look at.
“But our performance is the thing we can control and we have to spend a lot of time concentrating on that.”
