Form Guide

The Spireites have won the last two games by a scoreline of 4-1 and are looking to tighten their grip on a play-off spot.

The Stones are in a tough run of form, losing their last eight since a 5-1 win over Barnet on April 5.

Team News

Fraser Kerr will miss the remainder of the season after picking up an injury a week ago against Woking.

The fitness of Gavin Gunning and Curtis Weston will be evaluated before the game as they are both struggling with slight injuries.

From the dugout:

James Rowe: “They are going to play with freedom, that’s for sure. They have run a couple of the top teams very close.

“We can’t take the points for granted. With three games left, we need to make sure that this is a victory and three points.”
