Here’s what happened in this fixture last season - the Blades giving Chesterfield a lesson in a 3-0 victory at the Proact.

Who could forget this encounter? The last time Chesterfield beat the Blades at the Proact, two years ago, when each side had a man sent off.

Michael Higdon was given his marching orders for going in late on Dan Jones, while Town keeper Tommy Lee was also red carded.

Paul Cook’s Chesterfield went ahead through a Jimmy Ryan thunderbolt before Higdon’s red card.

Lee brought down Ryan Flynn and was dismissed, but Gary Roberts doubled the Spireites’ lead.

Eoin Doyle made it 3-0 before Marc McNulty and Neill Collins pulled two back for the Blades.

Going back a little further in time, Chesterfield were 3-1 winners on this occasion in 1989.

A brace from Andy ‘Bruno’ Morris followed Bob Bloomer’s opener, with Tony Agana replying for the Blades.

In 1980 the two sides met in the second round of the FA Cup, drawing 1-1 in this initial encounter, before Chesterfield won the reply 1-0.
