Spireites warning over draw specialists

Chesterfield are likely to be unchanged for tomorrow's home game against Maccles field Town, who remain unbeaten on their travels this season.

Following their blistering 4-0 win at Wrexham on Tuesday night, manager Lee Richard son has reported no fresh injury worries.

Janos Kovacs took a knock in Wales but there's been no adverse reaction whilst the stiffness suffered by on-loan Felix Bastians and man of the match Peter Leven has subsided.

Hamstring victim Jamie Ward is back in full training but is unlikely to feature whilst Steve Fletcher (thigh) is more likely to be back in eight days for the trip to Shrewsbury.

Midfielder Jamie Winter sits out the game through suspension following five yellow cards in his nine games.

Jack Lester, on eight goals this season, is likely to be partnered up front again by Adam Rooney, who bagged his first goal in Chesterfield colours at the Racecourse Ground.

Central defenders Kovacs and skipper Aaron Downes, left out of the Australian Olympic qualifying squad for the upcoming match in Lebanon, are both on four bookings this term so will need to watch their steps against Ian Brightwell's Silkmen.

Six draws in nine league games confirms Macc are tough to beat. They are without the injured Jamie Tolley, Richard Edghill and Andrew Teague but are able to field some excellent players such as strike pair Francis Green and Martin Gritton, experienced campaigners at this level.

They drew 1-1 at home to Rotherham United in midweek, the same score line that they recorded in their previous excursion, to Rochdale, though they sandwiched a home defeat to neighbours Chester City.

Their only victories this term, against Wrexham in the Johnstone's and high flying Hereford, both came away from home, so nothing will be left to chance by Richardson and his backroom staff as they look to banish memories of the last Saltergate game, a 0-1 loss against Barnet.
