Jimmy Ryan and Gary Roberts, who both picked up knocks in Chesterfield’s win at MK Dons, are both fit for tomorrow’s visit of Bradford City.

Both men have trained as normal in the last few days meaning Paul Cook has no fresh injuries to worry about. Dan Jones misses the second of three games through suspension so Sam Clucas looks set to carry on at left-back.

Georg Margreitter, the man at the centre of Spireites’ eligibility issues that could see them eliminated from the FA Cup, looks set to start what will be his last game on loan from Wolves. Ian Evatt (facial) and Sam Hird (knee) are both fit again but will have to battle it out for a spot alongside find of the season Charlie Raglan for the trip to Gillingham.

That means Spireites’ manager has only got to decide on whether to retain Armand Gnanduillet in his starting eleven.

The big Frenchman started in a 4-4-2 at stadium:mk and scored the game’s only goal so will be unlucky to be left out if Cook opts for a 4-2-3-1.

Eoin Doyle will be looking to become the Country’s first striker to hit 20 goals for the season, a statistic that’s certain to lead to enquiries for his services in the January transfer window.

City manager Phil Parkinson, who’s seen his side win four in five, has in form Jon Stead and Billy Clarke in attack whilst fit again winger Filipe Morais can really cause problems on his day.
