The Spireites will be looking for their third league away win in a row, after 1-0 wins at Aldershot and Exeter. It will not be easy against a Bradford side that have won 5, drawn 1, and lost 1 at home this season. The defeat was against highflying Port Vale, who are 2nd in the table.
Talking to the Club Website Paul Cook said: 'They're (Bradford) having a fantastic season, they're a very strong outfit. I watched them play at Wigan last week they had 5,000 fans at the ground and they were a credit to themselves. '
James Hanson is doubtful after missing training today (Monday) with a virus. Ricky Ravenhill will miss the match through suspension. Kyel Reid, Luke Oliver and Andrew Davies are still out long term.
Bermuda International Nahki Wells will be the danger man for Bradford. The Forward has already scored 8 goals in 13 games in the League this season. Described by boss Phil Parkinson, he said: 'Nahki is a talented player and his biggest attribute is the ability to finish with both feet. He is a very cool finisher. '
Hird will comeback into the team, after missing the Cup game through suspension, with Cooper doubtful after going off injured on Saturday.
Danny Whittaker has probably been the Spireites best player this season so far, the playmaker is at his best just behind the Striker or front 2. He makes good darting runs and can pick good passes out, he can also score from distance.
Stuart Attwell will be in charge of this game, he is famous for giving a goal for Reading against Watford in 2008. John Eustice knocked the ball over the byline, four yards wide of the goal. Instead of giving Reading a corner, he gave them a goal. The media dubbed it the 'the ghost goal'.
With Bradford playing well this season and have a good record at home. I feel it will be a 1-1 draw, with both teams full of confidence after good Cup wins, Bradford knocked Wigan out of the League Cup last week.
The Spireites are away at Bristol Rovers on Saturday.
