Spireites Take On Aldershot Town

The Spireites are hoping to get back to winning ways after 2 straight defeats. Aldershot have won their last 2 games at home to Torquay and Fleetwood. Andy Scott is their new manager, this will be only his 2nd game in charge, having seen his team win 2-0 against Fleetwood on Saturday. Although they are 20th in the table they are not to be underestimated. The Spireites have lacked firepower and will be hoping to get back to scoring goals, and one of the players that will be hoping to stop them will be Terrell Forbes playing at Centre back, who was at the Spireites early this season before being released by Cook.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Cook told BBC Radio Sheffield:'It is easy to moan about injuries and what you haven't got but I expect us to win on Tuesday. We're not on a great run but if you win then everything changes. We're not scoring enough at the moment but all we can do is keep working at it. If we score then there is a good chance we will win. I'm asking supporters to come and get behind the team and possibly show a bit of patience.'

Chesterfield Team News:

Neal Trotman is doubtful after picking up an injury on Saturday. Hird is still unavailable through suspension. Gnanduillet is still struggling with an abductor problem and winger Darikwa (hernia) is still two weeks away from a return.

Player to watch: Alex Henshall

Henshall came on in the second-half against Gillingham on Saturday. He should start tonight after putting in a good performance. He's really good at taking corners and Aldershot will find them difficult to deal with, he loves taking players on and cutting inside. He's full of energy and as lightning pace, the left winger will be a real handful.

Aldershot Town Team News:

Aldershot welcome back midfielder Danny Rose and left-back Anthony Tonkin. Lionel Ainsworth, Troy Brown and Jeff Goulding will be assessed to see if they are available having struggled with injuries.

Player to watch: Craig Reid

Number 20 Craig Reid will be hoping to score for Aldershot having scored against the Spireites last season for Stevenage when they came back from 2 goals down at home to draw 2-2. He has scored 9 goals from 25 starts this season.

Match Facts & Stats

Chesterfield have played 3 home games against Aldershot Town, winning 5-1, losing 1-0 at drawing 2-2. Overall record is won 3 drawn 2 and lost 2.

Looking at their stats based on the first half of their season, they had scored the most goals in League 2 from indirect free kicks, although they had only scored one from a corner which was the lowest.

They also conceded the most goals from long shots, conceding 11 goals from shots taken outside the penalty area. So hopefully Cook will adopt a shoot on sight policy, we don't shoot enough from outside the box, with only Whitaker confident enough to shoot from distance.

Ref Watch:

David Webb is the official in charge of this game. He was the Referee for the League Cup game against Tranmere at the beginning of the season, he booked 6 players which ended in a 2-1 defeat for the Spireites. He was also in charge of the Johnstones Paint Trophy game at Notts County last season, he sent lee Johnson off after 22 minutes, and booked 3 other players. The Spireites won the game 3-1 which was the start of the clubs journey to Wembley where they lifted the Trophy beating Swindon 2-0.

Match Prediction:

I'm going to go for 2-0, surely I'm going to get one prediction right this season. I think the Spireites will be too strong for Aldershot.

Next Fixtures:

Dagenham away is the Spireites next game, who are currently 16th in the League, they have lost six at home this season, lets hope the Spireites can make it 7.
