The Spireites have won both previous meetings at the Proact Stadium between the two sides by the same scoreline - 2-0 - and they will be hoping for a similar result come 5pm on Saturday.

Caldwell takes over the reins with the club third-from-bottom in League One, with just one win in five which came last time out at home to basement club Coventry City.

It was AFC Wimbledon who got the upper-hand in the return fixture earlier in the season, taking a narrow 2-1 victory from Danny Wilson’s Spireites in September.

Despite taking a first half lead from a corner, Paul Robinson levelled for the home side before Dominic Poleon scored what proved to be the winner late on.

It’s all square overall in the head-to-heads from the previous five meetings, with both sides winning two, losing two and drawing one. Which way will it go on Saturday?
