Gregor Robertson will miss out as Chesterfield hope to clinch promotion against Macclesfield at the b2net Stadium.

The defender suffered a suspected ruptured Achilles tendon during the surprise 3-0 defeat to Hereford last weekend and is expected to miss the remaining five matches of the season.

Ian Breckin, Robertson's replacement at Edgar Street, will come into contention to start while Derek Niven, Ian Morris, Kieran Djilali and Scott Boden are also available for recalls.

A certain change will see veteran striker Jack Lester, who has started every home league game this season, restored to the line-up.

There could be a familiar face in the Macclesfield side with Dan Gray, on loan from the Spireites, eligible to face his parent club.

Victory for John Sheridan`s side, combined with Shrewsbury failing to beat bottom-of-the-table Stockport, would see Chesterfield promoted on home soil for the first time since 1936.

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson could be boosted by the return of midfield duo Paul Bolland and Matt Hamshaw.

Bolland has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and Hamshaw has been troubled by a muscle strain.

They missed last weekend`s match against Accrington but physio Nick Reid said: "Both players came through a reserve match this week with no ill effects and have been in training since."

Striker Emile Sinclair is nursing a tight hamstring and will be assessed but skipper Paul Morgan is out for the season with a broken arm.

Simpson has no other injury or suspension concerns and the versatile Dan Gray is eligible to play despite being on loan from Chesterfield.
