Late check on Folan for Spireites

Published Add your comment

Chesterfield manager Roy McFarland will "wait until the very last minute" before deciding whether Carling Cup goal hero Caleb Folan is fit for the fourth-round visit of Charlton.

The Spireites´ leading scorer, who has scored against Manchester City and West Ham in the previous two rounds, suffered a hamstring strain in the weekend defeat at Gillingham and did not train on Monday. Mark Hughes is nursing a knee problem following his goalscoring debut at the Priestfield Stadium and is also a doubt along with Mark Allott (leg), who did not make the trip to Kent.

"Caleb had a tight hamstring at half-time but battled on for another 35 minutes before we eventually took him off on Saturday," McFarland told PA Sport.
