OUR home game against League 2 leaders Chesterfield...

...will be moved for the third time following the Spireites' continuing success in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Chesterfield progressed to this year's Wembley final following their 3-2 aggregate JPT northern area final victory against Fleetwood, despite losing Tuesday's home second leg 1-0.  

The final will be played on Sunday, March 30, meaning  Chesterfield's scheduled league game at Home Park the previous day will have to be postponed.

No new date has yet been set for the re-arranged fixture.

The date of the league match has already yo-yoed beween March 29 and Monday, March 31 after Sky Sports initially earmarked the game for live TV coverage before changing their mind.

Chesterfield led the northern area final 3-1 from the first leg, but were pegged back in Tuesday's game by Jon Parkin's 90th-minute goal and had to survive six minutes of stoppage time to reach next month's final against Peterborough.

The Spireites are finalists for the second time in three seasons, having won the trophy in 2012 under the management of current Argyle gaffer John Sheridan.
