Chesterfield's Head of Sports Science and Medicine, Rodger Wylde, was on hand to run through the squad members currently undergoing injury treatment.

Members of the squad are carrying a few knocks following Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Fleetwood, with Gary Roberts and Jay O’Shea both having issues with their right adductors. 

These minor setbacks will see O’Shea out for up to two weeks but Roberts is expected to be fit for Saturday’s game at Port Vale.

Romuald Boco is due to see a specialist to determine how long he will miss after fracturing his cheek in a seemingly innocuous clash during the game against Fleetwood. 

Midfielder Dan Gardner, will be seeing a specialist with regards to a similar adductor problem.

Ollie Banks has been in search of full match fitness after the injury he originally suffered during the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final against Peterborough earlier this year, where the young midfielder damaged the ligaments in his foot. 

Banks is still about another week away from full match fitness but has looked promising when coming on as a substitute in this season’s opening games, scoring a spectacular goal against Huddersfield in the Capital One Cup first round.

Romuald Boco is due to see a specialist to determine how long he will miss after fracturing his cheek in a seemingly innocuous clash during the game against Fleetwood. 

In long term injury news, Drew Talbot could be out for a further 12 weeks after his forthcoming operation, which will take place next week and hopefully put an end to the long standing groin problems that kept him out of action for parts of last season as well as the start of the current campaign. Talbot suffered a pubic bone injury last season and has also had problems with his adductors.
