PREVIEW: Spireites host high-flying Bromley

Chesterfield face Bromley at the Proact Stadium as the Spireites look to end their horrific run as of late.


The Opposition

Neil Smith’s side currently occupy second place in the National League table, sitting just 3 points behind Barrow.

However they haven’t managed to find a win in their last two; drawing to Yeovil and losing to Woking.


One to Watch

Michael Cheek - The striker is no stranger to the National League after representing Dagenham & Redbridge, Ebbsfleet and now Bromley at the level.

He signed for Bromley this Summer and is their leading goal scorer this season with 9 goals, two of which came against the Spireites down at Hayes Lane.

However, last time he came to the Proact he could only score one as Will Evans’ heroics denied him an injury time winner from the penalty spot.


Previous Meetings

This season at Hayes Lane, the Spireites failed to find their first win of the season as they fell to a 2-1 defeat.

The two sides met twice last season but neither team could come out on top. Zavon Hines scored a last minute penalty to rescue a point for the Spireites in the home fixture and Joe Rowley’s injury time strike down at Hayes Lane tied the scores at 3-3.


Team News

John Sheridan revealed that Josef Yarney is still recovering from injury and that Joe Rowley’s fitness will be assessed before the Bromley match.


Sheridan’s Thoughts

On his sides opponents, the Chesterfield gaffer said: “They’ve got some good players and it was a good game when we played them down there. They are having a great season so far.”

During the press conference the under pressure admitted that he knows he should be sacked.

"Really, ideally, I should be sacked. I should have lost my job with what we have shown this season and the results,” he stated.

"I don't think I am going to lose my job because I think I am going to turn it around. I have got to think as positively as I can in a difficult situation.”
