All change for Sheridan’s troops

CHESTERFIELD host second-placed Wycombe Wanderers tonight desperately needing to shake off their weekend lethargy.

An uninspiring home defeat to Morecambe knocked off the lustre that came as a result of seven points from the previous three away games.

John Sheridan will make changes. Danny Whitaker, Jamie Lowry and Scott Griffiths are the most likely replacements with the game perhaps a few days early for recovering Mark Allott (ankle), Dwayne Mattis (calf) and Dean Morgan (ankle).

Centre-half Simon Ford (calf) is still a while away from a return while right-back Javan Vidal has returned to Manchester City after his loan spell.

With no shots on target and no corners earned in the weekend defeat, the manager will be looking for some inspiration and Lowry could be the catalyst.

Without a start since October 2009, the 23-year-old is fully fit after his cruciate nightmare and, with a couple of sub appearances under his belt in the last three games, he could be given the nod.

Whitaker looked sharp after he came off the bench against Morecambe whilst Griffiths is champing at the bit after missing out in the last four matches.

The manager will no doubt stick with the Craig Davies and Jack Lester strikeforce after their fruitless afternoon, though the service they received left a lot to be desired.

Wanderers, 1-0 winners at Morecambe on Saturday, will be without their first-choice central-defensive pairing.

Chris Westwood is injured while Dave Winfield is suspended.
