Spireites face a vital home match tomorrow as they host the only team below them in the League One table.

Leyton Orient, despite progressing to the third round of the Carling Cup, have yet to pick up a league point.

Last week they lost at home to Carlisle United but they bounced back to beat Bristol Rovers in the cup. Their last away game saw them lose 5-0 at Brentford.

On Wednesday, Russell Slade saw striker Alex Revell move on to Rotherham United. He’d been a regular for the O’s this season though no replacement has been drafted in.

John Sheridan will have the biggest squad to date this season to select from.New signings, Lee Johnson, Jonathan Grounds and Craig Westcarr, are set to make their home debuts.

Alex Mendy is also available after his protracted international clearance has been confirmed whilst Mark Randall (hip) and Dwayne Mattis (ankle) should be available. Randall played for 45 minutes in the reserves defeat against Derby whilst Mattis’s injury was only minor.

Players whose place has been all but guaranteed, including Mark Allott and Danny Whitaker, will be anxiously waiting to see if they get the nod as competition for places hots up.

Jack Lester will return from being a sub in the loss at Exeter City last weekend for what is the season’s first ‘must win’ game for Chesterfield.
