For the first time in many months the Spireites squad has a clean bill of health and head of medicine and physiotherapy Rodger Wylde gives an update on how the recently returned are getting on.

Full back Dan Jones was the last man in the treatment room after suffering minor ligament damage in the recent Proact Stadium match with Fleetwood Town. 

Wylde fed back on the defender's progress as he returns from injury as well as giving details on other members of the squad.

“Dan Jones is the last one that has just gone back in to training,” said Wylde. “He is looking really good and feeling very confident. 

"Dan Gardner went to Tranmere Rovers last week and scored a great goal for them. I’d love to say it was the winner but it was the first goal for Tranmere and they lost in the end, but he scored so I’m happy with that, it shows his fitness is coming along.

Another player to come back from injury and be loaned out is Drew Talbot, who has had a difficult and troublesome groin problem for over a year.

Wylde said: “Drew Talbot has gone on loan to Plymouth after a long period out through injury. It was a very complicated injury around the pelvic area which isn’t always easy to come up with the right diagnosis for.

“He saw a lot of specialists and saw a professor in that area who, in the end, got to the bottom of it, he’s back now and he’s playing games. He’s been texting me after every game and letting me know about his progress.

“He had different problems. My analogy is that it’s like a pass the parcel. He’d had problems before I came here, over a year ago now, and we sorted one thing out and something else cropped up and we sorted that out and then something else popped up. 

“There was an underlying issue to all these things and we eventually sorted that out and he’s a very happy man now, as am I.”
