Goal hero Ritchie Humphreys is in no doubt the dressing room is ready for next weekend’s derby against Mansfield Town.

The ex-Owl, who became a father 30 hours before scoring the winner at Oxford on Saturday, said: “Everyone’s seen the fans queuing outside in the rain for hours to buy their tickets, that’s how much it means to them. It’ll mean as much to us when we kick off.”

Humphreys’ goal at the Kassam Stadium leaves the Spireites as League One’s only unbeaten club and avoiding defeat against the Stags will make it nine unbeaten from the start of the season, which would equal the club’ record, set in the Division 3 North Championship season of 1935-36.
