Team News 

Millwall will be without Jake Cooper, who is suspended following his red card in the FA Cup triumph against Premier League champions Leicester City. 

Ched Evans, Jon Nolan and Dion Donohue all missed Saturday’s defeat to Bury and will be unavailable to face the Lions. 

Tom Anderson will miss the game through suspension after his sending off against the Shakers although that is subject to an appeal. 

Form Guide

Millwall are on a fine run at the moment. They currently occupy the final play-off position and are unbeaten in 13 games in all competitions (10 in the league). 

They’ve only lost three home league games this season, while they have beaten three Premier League sides in AFC Bournemouth, Watford and Leicester City in the FA Cup. 

Gary Caldwell is still searching for his first win as Spireites boss after drawing two and losing three of his opening five matches as manager. 

It’s now one win in 10 for Chesterfield but victory at the Den could see them move to within four points from safety. 

Millwall won the reverse fixture 3-1 at the Proact back in August, however when the two sides met at the Den last season, it was Chesterfield who were the victors thanks to a Jay O’Shea brace. 

From the Dugout 

Caldwell is aware of the task at hand, but believes his team can benefit from Millwall’s FA Cup exertions. 

He said: “It’s a very difficult place to go, I’ve been there a few times and it is a hard place to play football, the crowd make it difficult for you. 

“But they’ll be flat, their energy levels will be low, make no mistake about that. When the adrenalin wears off and the energy wears out, we will have more energy than them.

“So it’s going to be a hard game for them.” 

Can't get to the Den? Fear not you can still follow all the action from the game.
