John Sheridan addressed the media ahead of Chesterfield’s National League clash at home to Bromley on Saturday, and the manager began by giving an injury update on his squad.

“We’ve near enough got everyone fit,” he said.

“The only ones are Yarney and Joe Rowley who’s got a bit of an injury.

“We’ll just have to see how he is.

“There’s only Yarney who’ll probably be missing tomorrow so everyone’s fighting and trying to get in the side.”

Bromley currently find themselves in second place in the standings and were victorious last time the two sides faced off at Hayes Lane back in September.

The boss explained that he understands the threat that the South London side will bring but wants the Spireites to stamp their authority on the fixture.

“They are having a great season so far,” said Sheridan.

“They are winning games to enable them to be in that position.

“They’ve got some good players and it was a good game when we played them down there.

“We possibly should have got something out of the game down there.

“We have to make life difficult for them and get the win.

“I’m pleased we are going to be playing teams that are up there because it means that we will have to turn up.”

Matt Tootle linked up with the Spireites on a season-long loan from Notts County just a day before making his debut at Aldershot Town.

Sheridan explained that the right-back adds experience and a will to win to his roster, by saying: “He’s a good player.

“He’s a good footballer and has experience.

“He played in pretty much every game for Notts County the season before last when they got to the play-offs.

“I know him and he knows how I want him to play.

“He’s an intelligent footballer and he’s a good competitor.

“He’s had a week with us and I’m sure he’ll do well for us.”

Saturday kicks-off a busy festive period for Chesterfield where they will come up against a number of the league’s in-form teams.

Sheridan was adamant that prospect of facing some of the top sides in the division will be a positive experience as it will provide an opportunity for his players to step up and be counted.

“They come quickly and you haven’t got much time,” the manager put forward.

“As a player, I always like the games coming on a Saturday and Tuesday.

“I think we’ve got five or six teams from the top ten coming up in the next few games.

“They’ll be good tests for us and we have to turn up.

“We’ve got to show that we can perform and compete but it’s all about getting the points at this moment in time.”
