And with Stags looking a decent shout for promotion this time it could be a good few more years before the Stags v Spireites derby is back on the fixture list.
But here’s five times when Stags showed Chesterfield how it’s done.
1. Mansfield Town 3 Chesterfield 1 - 6 May 1989
Mark Kearney was on the scoresheet as Mansfield Town beat Chesterfield 3-1 back in 1989. Mansfield ended that season 15th in the Division Three table. The win was the first in a run of five straight wins against Chesterfield between May 1989 and 3rd Jan 1994

2. Chesterfield 0 Mansfield Town 2 - 31st Aug 1991
Paul Holland is a man who had a foot in both camps. But back in Aug 1991 he hit a 25 yard screamer against Chesterfield as Mansfield got the better of Chesterfield at Saltergate. Gary Ford got Stags on their way with a tap-in during the first half.

3. Mansfield Town 2 Chesterfield 1 - 28 Dec 1991

4. Chesterfield - Mansfield Town 2 - 31 Aug 1993
Nick Clarke and Lee Wilson scored the goals as Stags got the better of Chesterfield in front of 5,712 fans. Mansfield would end the 1993/1994 season in 12th, but the win hit Chesterfield who missed out on a play-off place by two points.
