The left-back had two stints as a Spireite and spent four years with the Rams.

His playing days ended when he took a job as a fitness coach at Chesterfield, but departed last summer.

Tonight’s game is also a chance for the majority of Spireites fans to get a first glimpse of recent signing Evans in action.

The Welsh striker played for the club for the first time away at Ilkeston on Saturday, scoring a header in the 3-0 victory.

Kick-off at the Proact is 7.30pm.
