Chesterfield V Wycombe at Proact Stadium - Match Preview

Cook won't spoil Spireites' line-up

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook will stick with a winning formula when Wycombe visit the Proact Stadium.

After comprehensively defeating fellow League Two promotion hopefuls Rochdale 3-0 in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on November 12, Cook named an unchanged starting line-up for the league trip to Torquay last weekend. Following a 2-0 victory in Devon - a first win in eight league outings - the Blues boss will again stick with the same XI against Wanderers.

That will see captain Ian Evatt partnered at the heart of defence by Liam Cooper, with Sam Hird in a defensive midfield role and Ollie Banks playing off striker Armand Gnanduillet.

Full-back Nathan Smith (ankle) and midfielder Sam Morsy (knee) remain out while forward Gary McSheffrey has had a hip flexor problem.

Wycombe have received an injury boost ahead of the trip with the news that Kortney Hause's ankle injury is not as serious as first feared.

The 18-year-old centre-back sustained the problem against Swindon in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy and even though he is already off his crutches he will miss out on the trip and could return in early December.

Nick Arnold (groin) and Jo Kuffour (thigh strain) are also highly unlikely to feature having missed their shock 2-0 FA Cup win over Crewe in midweek.

But Jon-Paul Pittman has a slight chance of featuring as he steps up his recovery from a rolled ankle.
