Chesterfield have concerns over the fitness of key players Craig Davies and Dean Morgan for the visit of Torquay.

The forwards have been vital to the Spireites' success this season and neither would have made the squad had last weekend's game at Bury survived the weather.

Davies, leading scorer with 14 goals, has a hamstring problem. It is not as serious as first thought and the extra rest could be a blessing for boss John Sheridan.

Morgan always targeted the Torquay game for a return after being sidelined for the second time this season by a groin injury.

Jack Hunt has recovered from a virus but fellow on-loan full-back Kelvin Lomax has returned to Oldham after suffering an ankle injury.

Midfielder Derek Niven comes back into the reckoning after a three-match suspension.

Torquay manager Paul Buckle will welcome top-goalscorer Elliot Benyon back into the squad.

The 10-goal striker returns after missing the 1-0 FA Cup win over Walsall through suspension after collecting a total of five bookings for the season.

However, Buckle must decide whether to recall the 23-year-old to his starting line-up or keep the same XI against the Spireites, who are currently second in the Npower League Two table.

Benyon's return means that Buckle has a full squad to choose from with no other suspensions or any injuries within the camp to worry about as the Gulls look to extend an eight-game unbeaten run in all competitions stretching back to mid-October.
