Club explains absence of Richard Brindley and Armand Gnanduillet from Saturday's squad.
Spireites chief executive Chris Turner has revealed that a breakdown in contract talks with Armand Gnanduillet and Richard Brindley resulted in the pair being left out of the squad for Saturday's trip to Barnet.
"We tried to secure both players on new contracts last week and were hopeful that the business would be concluded on Friday," said Turner.
"Unfortunately, negotiations broke down when the agency involved advised Armand and Richard against signing the deals they had been offered. It was subsequently decided that neither player would travel with the squad to Barnet."
Gnanduillet and Brindley, who were both handed deals until the end of the season after impressing on trial, have now returned to training and will be in contention for Saturday’s game at home to Bradford City.
