History of the Chesterfield v Nottingham Forest fixture

Nottm. Forest face a trip to Chesterfield at Recreation Ground at lunchtime on Saturday, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Forest will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 7 and win only 3 of the 13 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in April 2006, as the visitors ran out cosy 1 - 3 winners in a League One match.
