Chesterfield Host The Chairboys

22 November 2013

Sponsored by

Chesterfield will host Wycombe Wanderers on Saturday in their 17th fixture of the 2013/14 League 2 campaign.

Overview

The Spireites come into Saturday's game on the back of three consecutive wins in all competitions, defeating Torquay United 2-0 in their last outing at Plainmoor.

Last weekend's result left Chesterfield second in the League 2 table with the same points as leaders Oxford United, 11 places and eight points above Saturday's opponents Wycombe Wanderers.

The Chairboys approach this fixture having won just two of their last eight League 2 games. However, Wycombe progressed to the second round of the FA Cup on Tuesday night after defeating League 1 outfit Crewe Alexandra 2-0 in the first round replay at the Alexandra Stadium.

Wycombe last visited the Proact in September 2012 where goals from Chris Atkinson, Jack Lester and Sam Hird cancelled out a Neal Trotman own goal in a 3-1 win for the Spireites. 

Team News

Chesterfield
Sam Morsy (knee) is still recovering from the injury picked up against Bristol Rovers and will be unavailable for Saturday. However, the midfielder is making strong progression and is likely to return earlier than expected.

Nathan Smith (ankle) is still recovering from a recurrence of his long-term problem and will miss out on the game against Wycombe Wanderers.

Gary McSheffrey (hip flexer) is questionable for Saturday as he has not fully recovered from the injury that kept him out of Chesterfield's trip to Torquay.

Wycombe Wanderers
Kortney Hause (ankle) and Jo Kuffour (thigh) will both miss out on Saturday's game due to their respective injuries. 

On-loan defender Nick Arnold will also be unavailable as the Reading youngster has returned to his parent club for treatment on his injury.

Jon-Paul Pitman (ankle) is unlikely to feature against Chesterfield as he's still recovering from a rolled ankle.

"We go to Chesterfield strong. If we can back up what we did on Tuesday then I think we don't have to fear anyone in this league."

"Our away form is really good this season and hopefully we can carry that on at Chesterfield on Saturday."
