The Spireites will be hoping to notch their first league win since September 21st this afternoon when they go to Torquay United.

Guided by former Chesterfield assistant manager Alan Knill, the Devon club have struggled themselves in recent weeks though they did win their last league match, 3-1 at Bury, one of only three teams currently below them in the table.

Cheltenham Town have been the only team the Gulls have taken three points off at Plainmoor this season and Chesterfield haven’t gathered maximum points there since 1984 in what was a Championship winning season under John Duncan.

Torquay lost 2-0 at home to Rochdale last Saturday in the FA Cup meaning they’ve exited all three knockout competitions at the first hurdle.

Paul Cook looks set to play an unchanged 11 after his team returned to form in the JPT on Tuesday, seeing off Keith Hill’s Rochdale in fine style.
