Team News

Swindon head coach Luke Williams, will be without long-term absentee Jamie Sendles-White, while Yasir Kasim could once again be forced to miss out due to an ankle injury.

Defender Lloyd Jones picked up a leg injury in last weekend’s win at Coventry City, and could be a doubt after not featuring against Gillingham in midweek.

Chesterfield boss Gary Caldwell will have Dion Donohue and Jon Nolan back in the squad, after the pair missed recent matches due to hamstring injuries.

Caldwell has no other injury concerns.

Form Guide

Luke Williams’ men head into the fixture in a fine run of form having drawn one and won two of their last three league fixtures.

Back to back 3-1 victories over Coventry and Gillingham leave the Robins in 21st place in the table, three points from safety.

With the Spireites midweek clash with Walsall postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, it means that it’s still only one win from their last 12 matches.

Chesterfield won this season’s earlier encounter between the sides at the Proact 3-1 in August, thanks to goals from Gary Liddle, Jay O’Shea and Ched Evans.

From the dugout

After seeing their midweek fixture washed out, Caldwell is looking forward to the game at Swindon, an important fixture for both sides.

He said: “I think that they’re always a really difficult team to prepare to play against.

“The way they play is very expansive; they ask you a lot of questions both defensively and in how you want to press them. 

“But for me it’s always an exciting game to prepare for, and I enjoy playing against them because they play a really attractive style of football.”
