Notts County V Chesterfield at Meadow Lane : Match Preview

11 August 2017
Notts County v Chesterfield

Notts County's performance in the Carabao Cup has given manager Kevin Nolan a selection dilemma ahead of the league visit of Chesterfield.

Following a disappointing display in the 3-0 defeat at Coventry, Nolan made eight changes against Scunthorpe and those players that came in did their chances of keeping the shirt no harm as they twice battled back from a goal down to draw 3-3 before losing the tie on penalties.

Jonathan Forte, in particular, impressed and he has put pressure on Jon Stead and Shola Ameobi ahead of Nolan picking his strike force for Saturday's Sky Bet League Two game.

After playing 120 minutes in driving rain on Tuesday night, Nolan will make some changes to add fresh legs to his team.

Chesterfield captain Ian Evatt returns for the Spireites after missing the 4-1 Carabao Cup defeat at Sheffield Wednesday through suspension.

Fellow defender Jordan Sinnott will be monitored after he picked up a thigh injury in last week's league opener against Grimsby.

Robbie Weir and Charlie Wakefield are options to return to the side after being on the bench at Hillsborough in midweek.

Jerome Binnom-Williams (ankle) and Joe Rowley (shoulder) remain unavailable with injuries suffered in pre-season.
