Chesterfield travel to Doncaster sitting third in the league and in high spirits after the 3-3 draw at Preston.

Doncaster have struggled in their Keepmoat Stadium matches this season, and have yet to win at home in their latest campaign.

However, Spireites manager Paul Cook isn't looking too deeply into the form book.

He said: "People look into home form, but how many home matches have they played? Doncaster are in an okay league position, they're doing well under Paul Dickov."

After suffering injuries at Deepdale on Tuesday night, Daniel Jones and Georg Margreitter will miss the short trip up into Yorkshire on Saturday afternoon.

Cook said: "They won't make the game tomorrow, that's the way it is and we'll make changes.

"I have decided what the team is. I like balance in the team and people will come back into the team. I'm lucky because a lot was made over the summer about the squad, but now we've got a good squad.

"We've got depth in our squad and I can call on any one of the lads now and, even with Hird and Talbot out, we've still got strength."

Over 400 Spireites made the long journey to Preston on Tuesday night and well over 2000 are expected to follow Chesterfield to the Keepmoat Stadium tomorrow.

The Spireites manager is keen to put on another strong show in Doncaster, but also has plenty of admiration for the afternoon's hosts.

"We'll travel over there tomorrow with fantastic support, however we concentrate on ourselves. 

"We respect every team we play and Doncaster are a fantastic club, they've overseen plenty of promotions and relegations. They've had some smashing results this season and they're very strong."
