Same again for Shots

Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon is set to name an unchanged side as he looks to build on a thumping midweek win when Chesterfield visit the Recreation Ground.

The Shots beat Dagenham & Redbridge 5-2 on Tuesday night to climb into the play-off places and remain unbeaten since Dillon was appointed at the start of November.

Experienced defender Adam Hinshelwood is fully fit as he manages a long-standing knee injury but he will again be restricted to a place on the bench thanks to the form of Anthony Charles and Chris Blackburn at the heart of Dillon's defence.

Charles was one of five different scorers in midweek and another - on-loan Bristol City striker Marlon Jackson - will continue after scoring his first professional goal.

Kirk Hudson (knee) and Dean Howells (hip) remain on the sidelines as the Shots look to make it eight games unbeaten.

Chesterfield boss John Sheridan could make changes.

Striker Drew Talbot was a substitute for the 3-2 home defeat against Crewe on Wednesday but he came off the bench to score and is pushing for a starting role.

Davide Somma and Ian Morris made their debuts against the Railwaymen and are expected to retain their places.

Central defender Aaron Downes has made a couple of reserve appearances since rupturing his cruciate ligament.

However, he is not expected to challenge Rob Page and Ian Breckin for another fortnight.

Defender Kevin Austin returned to the bench on Wednesday after flu while Jamie Lowry (cruciate) and Gregor Robertson (broken leg) are Sheridan's only long-term absentees.
