Team News

Iron boss Graham Alexander, will also check on the fitness of Jordan Clarke, who missed the 1-0 win at MK Dons with a toe injury.

Form Guide

Scunthorpe head into the clash on the back of four victories from their last six matches, and can confirm a play-off spot should they beat the Spireites.

Chesterfield meanwhile, head to Lincolnshire knowing that only a win will keep alive their hopes of beating the drop from Sky Bet League One. Anything other than a victory will confirm relegation.

From the dugout

Spireites boss Gary Caldwell has urged team to put Friday’s result behind them, as they look to end a disappointing campaign strongly.

He said: “It’s always tough going to Glanford Park, Scunthorpe are at the top of the league on merit.

“At home they’re very difficult to play against, it’s a tight pitch and they have a big home backing, so it’s another big challenge for us but we’ll be prepared, and we’ll dust ourselves down for Monday.”
