The Spireites could be set for a local derby in the Capital One Cup first round draw, which will be picked next week.
Chesterfield have been grouped in the ‘non-seeds north’ category along with fellow promoted sides Rochdale, Scunthorpe United and Fleetwood Town.
However they could potentially be facing a local rival in the first round with Derby County, Barnsley, Doncaster Rovers, Rotherham United, Sheffield United and Sheffield Wednesday all in the group.
The draw will be made on Tuesday June 17 at 10.00am, and there is also a chance for a repeat of last seasons first round tie against Leeds United, in which Chesterfield lost 2-1.
The first round fixtures for the competition will be played on the week commencing August 11.
