Head2Head & Team News - Chesterfield (A)

Last updated : 05 September 2008 By Deano
With heavy local rain in the air we're sitting with fingers crossed that the game tomorrow will take place, especially after 90 minutes of JPT action on the Saltergate pitch just 48 hours ago.

Mark Robins takes his team to Derbyshire hoping the manager of the month curse won't strike - the gaffer picked up his last award of this nature last November with the following game ironically being a 2-0 win at tomorrow's opponents. "It didn't affect us last time when we won it and then went to Chesterfield and won so I'm not taking any notice this time either", the gaffer told the Rotherham Star.

For me, if the Millers play to their potential they'll win the game, with the Spireites struggling for any consistency on home soil so far this term. Bury and Wycombe have already come away with maximum points and the squad will be looking to bounce back after their midweek exit on penalties to Grimsby in the JPT.

Take nothing for granted in local derbies though, as skipper Rob Page explained to CFC.co.uk his troops are up for the battle. "The points deduction has fired them up but any team you play in this division is tough. We have to take the positives from Wednesday night and we have prepared well - we will be 100% ready for the game", he explained.

Under-fire boss Lee Richardson was boosted by the return of the influential Jack Lester in midweek as the forward made a scoring return after injury, and he returns to league action tomorrow. Derek Niven, Paul Harsley and Lloyd Kerry, another midweek goalscorer, will battle for the starting roles in midfield. Trevor Carson will be available as he travels back from tonight's Northern Ireland U21 game. Gregor Robertson should line up against his former club at full back.

Mark Robins has no new injury concerns, new boy Omar Garcia is available for selection and it's expected Micky Cummins will again be on the bench as skipper Pablo Mills will sit infront of the back four to cut the supply line to Lester,

Mark Hudson makes another return to his old club where he netted last season in the Millers' victory.

Here's the head to head.
