The Spireites will be hoping to bounce back from their defeat at Bristol Rovers. They are hoping to have some of their key players back today. Home form as been poor in the League, although they won their last home 6-1 in the FA Cup against Hartlepool. Oxford have been poor on their travels winning 2 losing 6, scoring 8 conceding 18.
Chris Wilder talking to the media. said: 'They have a new manager, excellent players and a lot of players coming back for Saturday so their squad will be boosted by that and it's important we go there and perform. Maybe there is a touch of pressure off us away from home and we can go and express ourselves, but we know we will be dangerous opponents on the day.'
Cook talking to the media said: 'We all look at the league table and you are where you are, I think that must be the first thing, you can't look at yourselves in 17th and 18th place and both think we shouldn't be where we are. We are there, both clubs are there. Oxford have got some fantastic players, again had a lot of injuries and it does affect clubs. We know first hand it's affected us. We can't keep speaking about that as it's a failsafe that when they come back everything will be great. We don't like being 18th in the league and the only thing you can do about it is to start winning games quickly. '
The Spireites might have keeper Tommy Lee, striker Marc Richards, Boa Morte, and defender Liam Cooper available today. Brennan Dickenson is set to start after impressing at Bristol Rovers when he came on as sub.
Left Winger Brennan Dickenson will be the player to watch for the Spireites. He is blessed with speed and skills to beat defenders, can put a good ball in, and score goals.
Oxford hope to have striker Alfie Potter available after having a hamstring problem. Tom Craddock is expected to be fit to partner him. Ex Spireite Deane Smalley is unavailable after having a op this week.
Midfielder Peter Leven will be their danger man, he is well known to the Spireites having spent a season with the club before moving to MK Dons. He can turn on a sixpence a good passer can create chances and as a powerful strike on him. Last season he scored from 55 yards out against Port Vale.
The record between the two teams is close. Chesterfield winning 9, Oxford winning 7, with 10 games being drawn. Spireites home games against Oxford won 6 drawn 5 lost 2.
