Head to Head
This will be the first time that the two clubs have played each other in a competitive fixture.
Wealdstone have played four games so far this season, securing four points from a possible 12. They recorded their first win at the weekend, beating Wrexham 4-3.
The Spireites have also only got one win from their first four, losing 2-1 at home to Stockport County on Saturday evening following a late goal.
John Pemberton says that Luke Coddington is making “good progress” as he recovers from injury. He also hinted that Christmas is a more realistic target for the keeper’s return.
Josef Yarney is ready to make his return to the squad following a slight knock he picked up against Hartlepool United.
From the dugout:
John Pemberton: “We’ve got a fantastic opportunity to win and get to where I believe we should be.
“They had a good result at the weekend and It’s going to be a tough game.”
