JOHN Sheridan has to reply to the Football Association by the end of today with regard to a charge of misconduct.
The Spireites manager was sent to the stands during last weekend’s defeat at Charlton when he questioned the non award of what looked a penalty for handball.
His mind, however, will be on tomorrow’s home match with Colchester United, victory over whom will see Chesterfield leapfrog them in the table. U’s have lost just once in their last six league games, at Bramall Lane, and they have a good recent record on their visits to Chesterfield. Last week, at home, they beat Walsall by a single goal.
Jonathan Grounds (ankle) will have to prove his fitness in training today, Dean Holden stands by. Holden played half of the game in a reserves friendly at Doncaster in midweek, won 3-2 by Rovers, as did Derek Niven (ankle) but he’s still not ready to come into first team contention.
Dean Morgan, who played the majority of the second string match, is another who will be hoping for a recall to the starting line up with Lee Johnson the man most under pressure in midfield.
Colchester’s Ashley Vincent (knee) and Steve Gillespie (hamstring) are John Ward’s only worries, though neither is likely to make the squad.
