The Chesterfield youth team return to league action this Saturday lunch time with a match against Notts County at Staveley MWFC.

The match kicks-off at 11am and all supporters will be welcomed along to support the side, with free entry to all at Inkersall Road.

Before the game, academy manager Mark Smith assessed his hope for the weekend: "The last game we had was the Stourbridge game in the FA Youth Cup, that was a tough game but the pleasing thing was that we got through despite the stern test we faced.

"Saturday will also be a tough game, we had some ding-dong battles with Notts County last season and we know their abilities and the challenge they'll pose for us.

"They're a team that can mix it up, they play some good football but they can also go long when they need to and get to the front quickly.

"It will be a good test for our lads and it would be good if we could put in a good performance and stretch the run."

The Spireites have a near clean bill of health with Curtis Morrison back in the squad after a foot injury, the striker coming off the bench to score twice in the FA Youth Cup last time out.

Jack Brownell is the only man likely to miss out, after suffering a mild case of concussion in training on Thursday this week.
