BOTTOM plays top this evening as Chesterfield host leaders Charlton Athletic.

Chris Powell’s Addicks are the only League One side not to have tasted defeat in 2012, their last loss coming on New Year’s Eve at Orient.

Spireites boss Sheridan said: “We’ve got to win games quickly and pick points up. Even draws aren’t good enough.”

Influential midfielder Jonnie Jackson returned to Charlton’s line-up for Saturday’s win over Stevanage after injury and Bradley Wright-Phillips was back on the scoresheet after a gap of three months.

Sheridan is monitoring the men who missed the weekend loss at Notts County through injury. James Hurst (knee), Jimmy Juan (ankle) and Gregor Robertson (hamstring) will all miss out, though the boss will be hoping that Mark Allott, Drew Talbot and Simon Ford will be available.

Rookie right-back Tendayi Darikwa could retain his spot for a debut home appearance while Nicky Ajose, a sub on Saturday, is a likely starter.
