Spireites’ hosts tomorrow, Yeovil Town, formally secured their League One status last Saturday.
Two down at relegation threatened Leyton Orient with just nine minutes left, Andy Williams, who bagged his 16th of the season from midfield, and Jonathan Obika, on loan from Spurs, both scored to earn the point they needed.
The Glovers looked safe several weeks ago but a run of just one win in six dragged them back into the mix. Prior to their draw, Yeovil had been hammered 6-0 at home by Stevenage in a game that saw Michael Woods red carded. He will miss the Spireites game.
Also absent through suspension will be influential midfielder Ed Upson who picked up a three-match ban for accumulating 15 yellows in the recent 3-1 defeat at Notts County.
Former Chesterfield loanee Jonathan Grounds is at Yeovil, borrowed from Middlesbrough, and he plays in a defence that also features ex-Owl Richard Hinds.
Neal Trotman and Jack Lester are out through injury for John Sheridan’s side whilst Liam Ridehalgh is the biggest doubt from Saturday’s line-up having picked up a knock. Gregor Robertson, who came on for Simon Ford, could deputise at left-back as centre-back Ford looks likely to be available.
Danny Whitaker, a scorer off the bench in Chesterfield’s last two games, is a hot tip to start after being a sub in the last eight games.
