Chesterfield and Derby last met in the old Division Three during the 1985/86 season.

A goalless draw at the Baseball Ground on September 21, 1985 was followed with a Chesterfield victory at Saltergate.

Baines got the only goal of the game in front of 9,394 on February 22, 1986 - in one of only two wins for the Blues.

The other came on February 18, 1956 when Boyle and MacCabe were on the scoresheet for Chesterfield in a 2-0 win at home.

This coming Saturday’s fourth round tie will be the third meeting between the two clubs in the FA Cup.

They met in the third round of the competition on January 10, 1948 in Derby with the hosts winning 2-0.

The two clubs shared a 1-1 draw in Derby in January 1907 before the Rams won a replay 4-0.
