TEAM NEWS: First pro start for teenager and Ched Evans is back in the line-up
Chesterfield manager Danny Wilson has handed Ricky German the first start of his professional career.
The 17-year-old striker will play up front alongside Ched Evans today against League One leaders Scunthorpe United.
For Evans it’s a first start since September.
It ends speculation about his fitness after Wilson refused to reveal whether it was Evans or Paul McGinn who had suffered an injury set-back.
Kristian Dennis is out with a calf injury picked up in midweek against Fleetwood.
