PREVIEW: Spireites face Chorley in bottom of the table clash

The Opposition

The newly promoted side have found life in the National League difficult so far. Have only managed victory once this season, against Stockport County, beating them 3-0.

The Magpies have drawn 10 games this season, 6 of these away from home.



Chris Holroyd- The 33-year-old started his career at Crewe Alexandra, he then joined Chester, eventually signing a professional deal in 2006. Holroyd earned himself a move to the football league when he joined League One Brighton and Hove Albion for an undisclosed fee.

He spent time in the football league playing for the likes of Bury, Rotherham and Preston. The striker joined Chorley at the start of this season and has found the back of the net seven times this campaign.


Previous Meetings

Saturday’s fixture will be the first ever meeting between the two sides.


Team News

Following speculation this week, Sheridan confirmed that Anthony Spyrou has returned to his parent club Norwich City.

He also revealed that he should have a full squad for the Chorley game minus the absence of Anthony Gerrard.


Sheridan’s Thoughts

The Spireites boss said he expects a tough game: “We are playing a team who are bottom of the league but I’m very wary of them. Every game they have been in has been tight and they have had lots of draws.”
