Opposition

Manager: Danny Searle

Searle kick-started his coaching career at prestigious academies such as West Ham, Chelsea and Charlton Athletic. He holds a UEFA Pro Licence and started an LMA diploma in June.

He took the step into management taking charge of Braintree Town towards the back end of last season.

Despite not being able to keep Braintree in the National League, Searle left the club highly praised for his impressive form whilst in the job.

The 41-year-old joined Aldershot following his departure from Braintree in May 2019 and currently sees his side in 19th spot – four points ahead of the Spireites.

One to watch: Ethan Chislett

The young midfielder came up through the Shots academy before joining Metropolitan Police’s youth system at 15 years of age.

The 21-year-old broke onto the scene at the Police last season securing his place in the first team during a season which saw Police narrowly miss out on promotion.

Before re-joining Aldershot last summer, Chislett also had a spell at Basingstoke Town. Now, as Aldershot’s top scorer with five goals this season, he is instrumental for the Hampshire club at the heart of midfield.

Chislett scored in the side’s reverse fixture back in September which saw Chesterfield run out with a 2-1 victory.

Head to Head:

The two sides have played each other 37 times before Saturday’s match – Chesterfield winning 13 of those encounters.

Goals earlier in the season from Scott Boden and Liam Mandeville gave the Spireites all three points last time out.

From the dugout:

John Sheridan: “They’re a good team and they’ve have had some good results of late. I remember they played some good stuff when they came here – they’re a good footballing side. We’re very wary of them but we’ve got to go there with the belief we can turn this round.”
