Team News

Another new recruit, Jake Bennett, is struggling with a thigh problem while Jerome Binnom-Williams has had a sore ankle. 

Zavon Hines is available again after serving a three-match ban.

Charlie Carter is out for a minimum of 12 weeks after undergoing surgery on an ankle injury.

The Opposition

The Manager – Jamie Fullarton

Capped by Scotland at Under-21 level, Fullarton played for the likes of St Mirren, Crystal Palace and Dundee United. He also made one league appearance for the Spireites in 2004.

Fullarton set up a coaching academy in Spain before being made youth-team coach at Bristol Rovers in 2011.

A year later, he joined Bolton Wanderers as coach of their Under-21s.

Fullarton was named manager of Notts County in January 2016, but lost his job just two months later. 

He took over as manager of FC Halifax Town in February.

One to Watch – Matty Kosylo

Kosylo returns to the Halifax squad after suspension.

The 26-year-old, who was signed from Nantwich in 2016, scored nine goals last season.

He is a real fans’ favourite whose energetic performances have been matched with some fine goals and assists.

Head to head

Halifax Town collapsed following huge tax debts before FC Halifax Town was formed in 2008/09.

The Spireites had the upper hand against Halifax Town, winning 43 games, drawing 16 and losing 33.

From the dugout

Martin Allen: "We need to keep this little bit of positivity going that we've had in our last two matches. We have to scrap in every game and the players are giving everything they've got."
