Hartlepool became the early front runners in the National League after their 3-1 success over AFC Fylde on Saturday tea-time thanks to goals from Emmanuel Dieseruvwe and Callum Cooke.
And Pools will now head to the home of the pre-season favourites, Chesterfield, looking for a fifth straight win in the league.
John Askey will face some selection dilemmas, however, with less than 48-hours since that win over Fylde at the Suit Direct Stadium.

Chris Wreh went off with a tight hamstring while both Charlie Seaman and Dan Dodds picked up knocks in Saturday’s win – Askey suggesting Dodds might struggle to make Monday’s clash as a result.
Pools will, however, have striker Josh Umerah available after serving his three-match ban.
And here we predict our starting XI to face Chesterfield.
Seaman went off with a slight knock late in the win over AFC Fylde but is likely to feature against Chesterfield. Picture by FRANK REID John Askey may consider shuffling Lacey over in his defence if Dan Dodds is unavailable. Picture by FRANK REID Onariase has already established himself as a key figure in Hartlepool's defence. Picture by FRANK REID John Askey's concerns over Dan Dodds' fitness could lead to Burton being handed a debut for Pools with Edon Pruti left out of recent squads.

Picture by FRANK REID Cooke produced a standout display in the win over AFC Fylde. Picture by FRANK REID Mancini is likely to complete an unchanged midfield for Pools. Picture by FRANK REID Dieseruvwe will be looking to add to his two goals against AFC Fylde against Chesterfield.
