The man in the middle for the clash with Scunthorpe United was also in charge on the day the Spireites slaughtered the Shrews.

January’s 7-1 thrashing of Shrewsbury saw Langford award two spot-kicks to the hosts and show a red card to Shrew Junior Brown.

Langford, from the West Midlands, has refereed twice already this season in League One and dished out 11 cards.
