CHESTERFIELD: Gary keen to keep whip hand over Spireites

Have your say

BURTON Albion’s boss Gary Rowett has one major selection dilemma ahead of Brewers’ visit to Chesterfield on Saturday.

Striker Billy Kee scored the only goal at home to Accrington Stanley last Sunday but, of late, Rowett has employed a 4-5-1 formation for away games. Spearheading the attack in that pattern has been experienced front man Calvin Zola, so Burton’s boss will have to work out if he can employ the two men together.

One thing that could work in Kee’s favour is that Zola has been limiting his training of late with a groin injury, so the big Congolese striker could be rested. Albion, winners in their last three encounters with Spireites, sit one place and one point ahead of Chesterfield in ninth on a day when eight of the top 10 play each other, so the top of the table could have a different look by the end of the weekend. Paul Cook has no fresh injury problems and with loanees Liam Cooper and Brennan Dickenson secured until January, he has plenty of depth for the festive fixtures. With four wins on the trot in League 2, Chesterfield want to make it five in a row for the first time since 2010, in their Saltergate days.
