Stevenage Vs Chesterfield, Sat 30 Oct 2010


Stevenage look set to hand a debut to James O'Shea for the visit of league leaders Chesterfield.

The winger joined Boro on a one-month loan deal in the week and could go straight into Graham Westley's side.

Luke Foster is back in the squad after a one-match ban following his red card at Burton and he could be handed an instant recall.

Westley has no fresh injury concerns to deal with, but Joel Byrom (fractured eye socket), Lee Boylan, Chris Beardsley and Darren Murphy are all long-term absentees and not expected to be available any time soon.

Stevenage have settled into life into the Football League in fine fashion and welcome the Spireites to Broadhall Way on a run of just one defeat in the last seven games.

Jack Hunt returns from suspension for Chesterfield`s first-ever meeting against Stevenage.

The on-loan left-back served a one-match ban as John Sheridan`s side extended their lead at the top of the table to three points with a 4-3 home victory over Shrewsbury last weekend.

Sheridan must decide whether to restore Hunt to the team or stick with Dan Gray, who deputised against the Shrews.

With Accrington visiting the b2net Stadium on Tuesday night, the manager may choose to rest veteran striker Jack Lester and start with Jordan Bowery or Scott Boden alongside leading scorer Craig Davies.

Dean Morgan (groin) is Chesterfield`s only injury absentee. The striker is still a couple of weeks away from returning to contention.
