Chesterfield are in action this afternoon in what is a genuine relegation six-pointer in League Two.

The Spireites visit Port Vale, one of the two sides directly above them in the table, over whom they have two games in hand.

Vale welcome back top goalscorer Tom Pope to their starting line-up for the Good Friday clash, a man with a history of scoring important goals against Chesterfield.

There’s another familiar face in the home team, in the form of ex Spireite Charlie Raglan.

Jack Lester has the luxury of being able to name an unchanged starting XI after last week’s impressive 3-1 win over Notts County.

Chesterfield: Ramsdale, Barry, Talbot, Whitmore, Nelson, Weir, Reed, Brown, Hines, Kellett, Dennis. Subs: Anyon, O’Grady, Smith, Dodds, Maguire, McCourt, Kay.

Port Vale: Boot, Raglan, Howkins, N. Smith, Montano, Worrall, Pugh, Tonge, Hannant, Pope, Barnett. Subs: Hornby, Davis, Gibbons, A. Kay, Whitfield, Harness, Turner.
