Spireites Prepare for Final Friendly

31 July 2015

Chesterfield will complete their pre-season programme on Saturday with a game at Hartlepool United.

Dean Saunders takes his team to the north-east at the end of a week when the Spireites won 3-1 at non-league Ilkeston and then beat Sheffield Wednesday in a private practice match.

With the start of the new season just a week away, there are players who will be looking to stake a claim for a place in the starting line-up in the opening day game against Barnsley.

With Tendayi Darikwa having left the club to join Burnley, the right-back berth is up for grabs, but it remains to be seen whether Drew Talbot will be fit enough to feature against Hartlepool.

Young Jake Orrell, signed after impressing on trial, will be hoping to play in his native north-east. The diminutive forward scored against Burnley last weekend.
