Chesterfield Host The Daggers

28 December 2013

Sponsored by

Chesterfield will host Dagenham & Redbridge on Sunday in their 23rd fixture of the 2013/14 League 2 campaign.

Overview

The Spireites approach Sunday's game on the back of a four-game unbeaten run in all competitions, drawing 1-1 with Hartlepool United in their last outing at the Proact Stadium where a 48th minute Matty Dolan penalty cancelled out a fine first half volley from Tendayi Darikwa.

Chesterfield have taken 11 points from their last six league games and have lost just one in ten, propelling the Spireites to a two-point lead atop the Sky Bet League 2 table, ten places and ten points above Sunday's opponents Dagenham & Redbridge.

The Daggers come into Sunday's game having taken just four points from their last six league games and on the back of a three game losing streak.

The Greater London side have struggled to return to their September/October form that saw the Daggers lose just once in 11 games across the two months, winning seven and drawing three in the process.

Dagenham & Redbridge last visited the Proact Stadium in October last year and prevailed 2-1 through two Sam Williams goals that overcame a 55th minute Jack Lester strike.

Team News

Chesterfield

Liam Cooper (ankle) and Nathan Smith (ankle) have both been given the all clear from their respective injuries and will be available for Sunday's game.

Jamie Devitt (flu) was unavailable for Chesterfield's game against Hartlepool United due to a bug the midfielder picked up over Christmas but he returned to training on Friday and is a possibility for this weekend's fixture.

Sam Morsy has suffered a slight recurrence of the knee injury that has kept the midfielder out of action since Bristol Rovers and looks unlikely to feature against the Daggers.

Gary Roberts (hamstring), Jimmy Ryan (shoulder) and Aaron Chapman (knee) have all been confirmed as missing out on Sunday's game due to their respective injuries.
