We travel to the North-East on saturday Hartlepool United the hosts, and we travel there on a bit of a slump, no wins in four and only one point. However we will travel in hope as Derek Niven, Jamal Campbell-Ryce and Caleb Folan are back into the squad following injuries and suspensions. Unfortuantely having completed his three match ban Mark Innes has now picked up a thigh injury and Mark Hudson is still out with a hamstring problem.
Last time out we limped to a two goal defeat and we really were poor that very cold tuesday night, Pools last season didn't play to their pre-season prediction which was consolidate they did better by reaching the play offs and were unlucky to lose to Bristol City, the impressive Chris Shuker has left to join Barnsley but they still have ex-owl Richie Humphreys and former Torquay striker Eifon Williams in the first team. I would expect not too many changes to the first team on saturday maybe Niven for Gareth Davies and after that it's a scrap for the benches as most of the squad is fit and ready. For you're travel requirements please visit the official website www.chesterfield-fc.co.uk I'll see you for now and maybe see you in the pub on saturday.
