Chesterfield can secure a play-off place this weekend.

All ties are single-leg matches with extra time and penalties used if necessary.

All matches will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

Chesterfield will be involved in the play-offs if they avoid defeat against Woking this Sunday.

The Spireites could also still qualify if they lose but they would need Dagenham and Rebridge, who are three points behind but have a better goal difference, to not win at home to title contenders Wrexham.

A win for the Daggers and a defeat for Town would see Paul Cook’s men miss out.
