Tom Whelan picked up a red card early on against Dagenham & Redbridge and will be unavailable for the next three games. James Rowe confirmed in his pre-match press conference that the Spireites have appealed the red card decision.

From the dugout:
James Rowe: “They have a very experienced coach who knows his stuff. We have to respect every opponent and we won’t be taking King’s Lynn lightly at all.

“We want to start on the front foot and make our home ground count. Hopefully we can push on and get the three points.”
