Talbot blow for Spireites

PA Sport

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook will be without Drew Talbot for the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Northern Area final second-leg clash with Fleetwood.

Talbot will see a specialist to determine the extent of the injury which kept him out of the 3-1 victory over Torquay at the weekend.

Winger Gary Roberts, who came off the bench on Saturday, looks likely to return to the starting XI.

Jay O'Shea scored twice in the closing stages against the Gulls and he could play some part as the Spireites, who ran out 3-1 winners in the first leg, aim to book their place in the final.

Striker David Ball is in line for a return to Fleetwood's starting line-up.

Ball, who scored the Cod Army's only goal in the first game, has missed the last two fixtures with a knock but boss Graham Alexander insists he is recovering well.

Alexander is also optimistic on defender Alan Goodall, who is thought to have been rested more as a precaution for fatigue at the weekend after a hectic run of games.

Goalkeeper Chris Maxwell is likely to assume the gloves for a third game in the row after keeping a clean sheet in the 2-0 win over Northampton while striker Jamille Matt (ankle) has shown no adverse reaction following his first start since October. Midfielder Jeff Hughes (broken leg) is out, though.
