Accrington manager John Coleman will be hoping Chris Turner can recover from a knock in time for the visit of league leaders Chesterfield.

The midfielder missed out with an ankle injury on New Year`s Day as Stanley returned to action following a three-week break with a victory at rivals Morecambe.

Accrington accrued no more problems on Saturday and Coleman has an otherwise clean bill of health.

Changes are perhaps inevitable for a second game in three days. Among those players in the mix for a recall are defenders Leam Richardson and Sean Hessey and midfielders Ray Putterill and Luke Joyce.

The victory at Morecambe was only Stanley`s second in their last 10 league matches.

Chesterfield forward Dean Morgan is an injury doubt for John Sheridan`s side.

Morgan, who has recently been nursing a groin problem, lasted just 34 minutes on his return to the starting line-up against Stockport before he was forced off with another knock.

His anticipated absence is unlikely to be the only change made by Sheridan.

Two games in the space of three days might be too much for Hatters hat-trick hero Jack Lester and the veteran striker will probably be rested. Therefore, either Jordan Bowery or Scott Boden could be recalled.

Ian Morris, Jack Hunt, Craig Clay and Deane Smalley are other options for Sheridan.
