Spireites chief executive Chris Turner has paid tribute to Sheffield United for allowing them to borrow striker Chris Porter.
The League Two leaders have signed the 29-year-old on loan from the Blades until November 2 to ease their injury crisis up front. Marc Richards and Armand Gnanduillet are both currently sidelined while Eoin Doyle’s partner is in the latter stages of her pregnancy.
Turner said: “Chris [Porter] was first on our list and United have been extremely helpful in getting the deal sorted.”
Porter could make his debut in Chesterfield’s clash at Morecambe this afternoon. The Wigan-born player, who has not featured since the Blades defeat at Rotherham United, is also eligible to play in Tuesday’s Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie at Mansfield Town.
