The League Two opener away to Chesterfield at the SMH Stadium will kick off at 8pm on Friday, August 9.

Chesterfield returned to the EFL after a six-year absence as they ran away with the National League title last season.

The match will be shown on the new Sky Sports + channel, which has been introduced ahead of the new campaign.

Town fans will have their first chance to see Mark Kennedy's new-look side run out at the County Ground when Walsall visit eight days later, with a trip to Crewe Alexandra on August 24 and a home fixture against Notts County on August 31 rounding off the first month.
