James Rowe will have some tough decisions to make when selecting today’s squad, with many players still out injured.

Curtis Weston came back into the fold last week against Southend in the FA Cup and the midfielder will be hoping he is fit enough to start today’s fixture.

New signing Tyrone Williams will be hoping he can make an instant impact at Chesterfield. The 6’ 4″ defender could be set to make his first start for the club, despite only signing for the Spireites yesterday afternoon.

Kabongo Tshimanga will be looking to add to his already impressive tally, while Nathan Tyson, Stefan Payne and Danny Rowe will be fighting it out for their place in the starting XI.
