Midfielder Mark Randall has put himself back in contention for the weekend trip to Bournemouth.

The former Arsenal man played for over an hour in the reserve’s goalless draw at Stoke City and could be set for his first Spireites appearance in a month after a hip injury.

Dwayne Mattis didn’t take part in the second string game so his injured ankle may still keep him out of the match.

Chesterfield boss John Sheridan will be hoping to add at least one new face to his squad ahead of tomorrow’s departure for the South Coast. With Jack Lester, Derek Niven, Gregor Robertson and Jamie Lowry all out, the manager is hoping for some good news after a disappointing start to the campaign.

Bournemouth have lost several of their top men. Jason Pearce, Danny Hollands, Rhoys Wiggins, Anton Robinson, Danny Ings and Liam Feeney have all departed since the end of last season whilst Steve Lovell has retired.

Cherries’ fans gave their Chairman Eddie Mitchell a really hard time at a recent fans’ forum and after four straight league losses that have seen them fall into the bottom four, an early slip up against Chesterfield could make Dean Court a hostile environment.
