History of the Bury v Chesterfield fixture

Bury prepare to entertain Chesterfield at Gigg Lane on Tuesday evening, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Shakers are clearly on top, having won 22 and lost only 4 of the 37 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Gigg Lane was just last season, in December 2007, with Chesterfield inflicting a narrow 0-1 defeat upon the The Shakers in a League Two match.
