PREVIEW: Spireites host high-flying Harrogate

Chesterfield welcome Harrogate Town to the Proact Stadium in search of a third successive win.

A victory will take the Spireites out of the relegation zone and possibly to their highest league position this season.



Harrogate Town currently sit in 2nd, 8 points behind league-leaders Barrow. It is looking likely that the side from Yorkshire will make the play-offs for the second season in a row. Last season they were beaten by AFC Fylde in the play-off eliminator.

Their last defeat came at the end of January when Wrexham claimed all three points on their visit to Wetherby Road However, they haven’t lost away from home since 21st December when Boreham Wood beat them 2-1.



Jack Muldoon- The striker started his career at home-town club Scunthorpe before moving to the youth setup at Doncaster Rovers. He spent time in non-league with a selection of clubs, including Alfreton Town, Glapwell and Worksop Town (where he scored 21 goals attracting the interest of Rochdale).

He only made 3 first team appearances for Dale and spent time on loan at Halifax Town. The forward was with Lincoln City where he made 71 appearances scoring 10 before he joined AFC Fylde in 2017. After spending a season in Lancashire with the Coasters the 30-year-old joined Harrogate Town. So far this season Muldoon has found the back of the net 12 times.


Previous Meetings

The Spireites have failed to come out on top against Harrogate in their past meetings. Last season an injury time winner denied Mad Dog’s side full share of the points in the away fixture while Harrogate Town claimed a 1-0 victory at the Proact.

Back in November the home side came out on top at Wetherby Road despite Mike Fondop’s early strike to put the Spireites ahead.


Team News

Once again John Pemberton has no fresh injury concerns to announce.

He said: "Everyone is fine. We are training well, in good spirits. Hopefully we can carry on doing what we have been doing and keep climbing."


Pemberton’s Thoughts

The Spireites manager said: “We’re looking forward to the game. They’re a good side and we’ve got to be good.”
