Stockport County Vs Chesterfield, Tue 1 Feb 2011

Published Add your comment

Rock-bottom Stockport will be without Robbie Williams for the home clash with Chesterfield but new recruit Alan Goodall may come into contention.

Left-back Williams' contract at Edgeley Park has expired but defender Goodall has joined from Rochdale on a contract until the end of the season.

Defenders Daniel O'Donnell and Aaron Brown joined the League Two strugglers last week and made their debuts in Saturday's 4-0 hammering at Rotherham.

Stockport have failed to keep a clean sheet in the last 13 games and have the unenviable record of 65 goals against in just 28 games.

Yet caretaker boss Peter Ward said: "There is still a lot to play for and we owe it to the fans of this club to work hard and turn results around."

Leaders Chesterfield have injury problems to contend with.

Defenders Gregor Robertson and Simon Ford and striker Jack Lester are doubts after sustaining problems during the 2-2 home draw against Bradford on Saturday.

"There are a lot of games coming up and Gregor and Jack both have slight pulls to their hamstrings and Fordy is struggling with a swollen knee, so there could be changes," said assistant manager Tommy Wright.

"On the plus side, we have replacements and a fairly strong squad we can rely on. We will need it in the weeks ahead."

Scott Griffiths and Javan Vidal could return in defence should Robertson and Ford not make it.

Deane Smalley is the likely replacement for Lester, while fellow forward Jordan Bowery is another option for manager John Sheridan.
