Mark Allott and Danny Hall are in contention to return to the Chesterfield starting line-up when Bournemouth visit for the final league match at Saltergate.

The duo have shaken off a virus which forced them to miss the 2-0 defeat to Accrington last week, a result which has all-but ended Chesterfield's hopes of a play-off place.

Defensive duo Jamie Lowry and Aaron Downes and midfielder Simon Whaley are long-term absentees though manager John Sheridan has no other injury or suspension problems.

With a sell-out crowd gathered the focus will be on Saltergate, which has been home to the Spireites since 1871. Next season they will play their home matches at the B2net Stadium.

Sheridan's men are two points behind seventh-placed Dagenham but crucially they lie 10th in the table so they have to win and hope the Daggers, Bury and Port Vale all slip up if they are to get into the play-offs.

Warren Cummings is likely to replace Rhoys Wiggins in defence as Bournemouth look to finish their season in style.

Wiggins played his last game for the Cherries in their 4-0 win over Port Vale and has now returned to parent club Norwich after completing his loan spell with Eddie Howe's men.

Goalkeeper Shwan Jalal (ankle) is a doubt after failing a late fitness test before the victory over the Valiants. He has since returned to full training but Howe may decide not to risk him.

Defender Ryan Garry will probably not play as he continues his comeback from a hip flexor problem, while midfielder Mark Molesley has had an operation on his injured foot and is now on crutches.

Bournemouth will be looking to record a fifth successive victory.
