Opposition

Manager: Danny Searle

Having applied his trade at academies such as Chelsea, West Ham, Southend United and Charlton Athletic, Searle was appointed as Aldershot’s manager in May 2019 after overseeing Braintree Town towards the back end of last season.

The 41-year-old’s spell at relegated Braintree Town was good but their push for safety came just too late despite impressive form.

Searle holds a UEFA Pro Licence which is a credit to his development during his times at the various academies early in his coaching career.

The Shots currently sit 20th in the National League five points ahead of the Spireites.

One to watch: Ethan Chislett

Chislett came up through the Shots Academy before he joined Metropolitan Police’s youth system at 15 years of age.

The young midfielder starred at the Met Police last season, breaking into the first team and asserting himself during Police’s narrow miss on promotion.

Having also previously played for Basingstoke Town, the 21-year-old looks to create from the heart of midfield and can also provide goals.

He’s the Shots’ current top scorer on three goals this season.

Head to Head:

Chesterfield and Aldershot have previously met 36 times with the Spireites winning 12 of those games.

The Spireites came out on top last time out back in January of last season in John Sheridan’s first league match in charge. Will Evans grabbed a brace against his former club in a 2-0 away win.

From the dugout:

Glynn Snodin: “Every game is important, I know the situation because we’ve only won one, but we always make sure we don’t take anything lightly. It will be a tough game but hopefully, we come out on top.”
