Match preview: Bradford City (h)

The Spireites face Bradford City this evening (7.30pm) in their opening home pre-season friendly fixture.

It is a return to familiar surroundings for the players following trips to Derbyshire neighbours Alfreton Town and Matlock Town.

James Rowe will use the match to give more game time to his players after returning from a training camp at Loughborough. It will be the first appearance at the Technique Stadium in a Chesterfield shirt for players who have been recruited over the summer and the manager is likely to take a look at one or two trialists who are hoping to impress.

Admission costs £10 for adults and £5 for Under-16s with tickets available to purchase via the following link: Please use the Print at Home facility, where possible.

Tickets can also be purchased from the Club Superstore, which is open from 9.30am.
