In Friday’s pre-match press conference, Danny Webb revealed that the Spireites do have a few injury concerns going into the fixture, but that doesn’t mean that anyone missing out against Bromley won’t feature on Monday against Stockport County.

Akwasi Asante could be a doubt for this fixture after the striker went off injured in last week’s game against Dover. 

With Bromley’s artificial pitch, this could cast doubts over Tom Denton’s involvement in the fixture, as the striker has been prone to missing these games in the past due to his historic knee problems.

Danny Rowe could feature in the coming weeks, but today’s game might just come too soon for the striker.

Meanwhile, Manny Oyeleke will be hoping to keep his place in the starting XI, despite Jak McCourt and Jim Kellermann knocking on the door.
