Spireites are odds on with bookies for the drop

Whilst there may be some Chesterfield fans who think the club can escape from the relegation zone, the bookies overwhelmingly think otherwise.

All of the major bookmakers have Spireites as odds on to be relegated, despite them being just six points from safety with 13 games still remaining.

As you’d expect, Coventry are favourites for the drop with Swindon and Port Vale, the other relegation zone tenants, also not widely fancied to escape.

Not many banking on Chesterfield dropping to League Two will get much of a return, William Hill having them at 1/5 and being the best bet ahead of the weekend’s games.

Only SkyBet are offering odds on Chesterfield stay up, 6/1 the price if fans want to back Gary Caldwell’s men to avoid the drop.
