What time is Chesterfield v Solihull Moors kick-off and what TV channel is English National League (Semi Final) on?
Chesterfield using EFL Trophy heartache to ensure they get better of Solihull Moors
Chesterfield play host to Solihull Moors on Sunday afternoon looking to move to within one victory of earning promotion back to the EFL.
However, Grimsby head into the National League playoff semi-final in the greater form having edged out Notts County in the quarter-finals earlier this week.
When Chesterfield produced a dominant performance to see off eventual champions Stockport County earlier this month, many were tipping the Welsh side to achieve a league and cup double.
However, since May 8, the Dragons have been thoroughly outplayed by Dagenham & Redbridge on the final day of the campaign, leaving them to settle for second spot, and lost the FA Trophy final to Bromley.
Such has been the focus on promotion that the Wembley showpiece was played down to a certain degree, but Phil Parkinson cannot be happy with how his team have performed over their last 180 minutes.
Overall, they have won just four times in nine matches since the middle of April, hardly the form of promotion hopefuls, and there is no doubt that the stakes have been significantly raised ahead of this contest.
On a positive note, Chesterfield have not suffered defeat at the Racecourse Ground since the end of November, with one of their victories since then being against Grimsby by a 1-0 scoreline.
“The aim is to go again and get promoted. We have worked really hard all season to get to this point and our aim is to not let it slip, not to let it go. We will work hard in training this week and come out flying on Sunday.”.
