James Rowe’s men finished the season with four wins from their last five to secure sixth spot.

Notts won at the Technique Stadium in November, but Town got revenge in February.

Despite facing each other twice already this season this will be the first time that managers James Rowe and Ian Burchnall have gone head-to-head.

Made one top save against Halifax at 1-1 which proved crucial.

Here is Liam Norcliffe’s predicted Chesterfield starting line-up for the big clash...

Can't fault him since returning to the side.
Seems to have got over the worst of his injury niggles.
Played a big part in Town's winner at Halifax.
Has started the last 28 matches.
Played the full 90 minutes against Halifax so hopefully his Achilles problem is easing off.
Gets better and better each game.
Taylor was replaced at half-time against Halifax for 'tactical' reasons. Whittle came on did well in his place.
A goal and assist last time out.
Clarke and Mandeville were excellent against the Shaymen.
Had to come off against Halifax in the first-half because of a sickness bug. Tyson will probably start if Rowe has not recovered.
Might swap with Whittle and be among the subs.
Like Rowe, Whelan had been struggling with a sickness bug in the lead up to the Halifax match.
Came on late in the win at The Shay.
Saturday's matchwinner could start if Rowe is not fit. He would face his former club if so.
He's been on the bench for the last two.
