LiveRecap: Eastleigh concede late equaliser against Altrincham to put Chesterfield in driving seat for play-offs
Chesterfield will find out tonight what they need to do on Saturday to secure a play-off place.
Ninth-placed Eastleigh play their game in hand at Altrincham this evening (7pm KO) and a win for the visitors will leapfrog them to fifth, with the Spireites dropping out of the play-off positions.
If that happens Town will need to beat Halifax this weekend and hope that either Wrexham or Eastleigh don’t win.
But a draw or defeat for Eastleigh tonight would keep the Spireites’ fate in their own hands.
