Spireites trio rated as doubtful

Defenders Gregor Robertson and Simon Ford and striker Jack Lester are doubts after sustaining problems during the 2-2 home draw against Bradford on Saturday.

"There are a lot of games coming up and Gregor and Jack both have slight pulls to their hamstrings and Fordy is struggling with a swollen knee, so there could be changes," said assistant manager Tommy Wright.

"On the plus side, we have replacements and a fairly strong squad we can rely on. We will need it in the weeks ahead."

Scott Griffiths and Javan Vidal could return in defence should Robertson and Ford not make it.

Deane Smalley is the likely replacement for Lester, while fellow forward Jordan Bowery is another option for manager John Sheridan.
