Gary Caldwell is exploring the option of recalling Laurence Maguire from his loan spell at AFC Fylde.
The 20-year-old has spent just under a month with the National League North leaders but a serious injury to Spireites captain Ian Evatt means he may be needed at the Proact.
With Evatt expected to miss the rest of the season with a suspected knee injury, Caldwell has asked the club’s secretary to look into the possibility of getting Maguire back.
He said: “We’re looking into Laurence and possibly getting him back.
“I’ve just put that information into Sally and she’s findout out the relevant details so we’ll know more about that in the next few hours.”
Centre-half Maguire has made nine appearances for Town this season but all of those came under previous manager Danny Wilson.
