The Spireites are looking to bounce back after losing at home to Southend. It should have a great atmosphere with Keith Hill taking charge of his game at Spotlands since returning as manager. His first game back he managed to get a 0-0 draw at Cheltenham. They had suffered 3 defeats in a row previously which resulted in the sacking of Coleman.

Vital Quotes:

Cook talking to the official site said: "I do think with it being Keith's first home game, they'll want to win and rightly so. We've spent the week going over the game against Southend and how we can do better. I'm really pleased with how we are training. We're fully aware of every Rochdale player and what they'll do. Whatever they put up we know about it.'

Rochdale Team News:

Shane Cansdell-sheriff will be in their squad having joined on-loan from Preston. Hill has no new in injury worries, Reece Gray (broken leg) is back in training

Player to watch: Andrew Tuttle

Tuttle has scored 8 goals from midfield this season, he scored at the Proact in a 1-1 draw. The Spireites will need to watch out for his runs into the box.

Chesterfield Team News:

Drew Talbot (broken toe) is still out injured, Gnanduillet could get his first start in English football, partnering Richards upfront in a 4-4-2 formation.

Player to watch: Tendayi Darikwa

Tendayi Darikwa will be a real handful for their defence full of pace and trickery he loves to run at defenders. There was a big sigh of relief when the transfer window shut, because a couple of Premierships have been watching for several weeks.

Match Facts & Stats

The Spireites are ahead in games played at Spotland, winning 19, drawing 9 and losing 18, goals for 68 against 77.

Ref Watch:

Andy Haines will take charge of this game, A very dedicated Referee he once cut short his holiday in Dominican Republic for an interview to allowing him to ref in the Conference. The last time he refereed a Town game was at Morecambe earlier in the season, a forgettable 2-0 defeat, he gave out 3 yellow cards.

Match Prediction:

It will be a tough match for the Spireites, with Keith hill back in charge. I'm hoping that the Spireites can pinch a 1-0 victory. With the Spireites having too much quality for Rochdale to cope with.

Next Fixtures:

We welcome AFC Wimbledon to the Proact for the first time.
