The Welshman’s absence allows Kristian Dennis to come in for his full Spireites debut.

Dennis has made six appearances off the bench this season, scoring in the EFL Trophy against Wolverhampton Wanderers U23s.

Jon Nolan returns in the midfield and Jay O’Shea is back in the starting line-up with Connor Dimaio and Dan Gardner both dropping to the bench.
