The Opposition:

Yeovil Town come into the game without a win in the National League this season. Darren Sarll’s side did beat Dover on penalties at the weekend in the FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round. They currently sit 18th, four places above the Spireites with four points from a possible eighteen.


One-To-Watch:

Courtney Dufuss- The former Republic of Ireland Under 21 international started his career in the youth setup at his hometown club Cheltenham before making the move to Everton. The forward signed up professionally in 2014, then spent time on loan at Bury before joining Oldham Athletic on a permanent deal. Whilst with the Latics, Duffuss was loaned out to League of Ireland Premier Division side Waterford where he made 25 appearances, scoring 10 goals. He returned to England when he joined up with Yeovil Town .The 24-year-old has found the back of the net 16 times since joining the Glovers in January 2019


Previous Meetings:

Last time out at Huish Park, Chesterfield kept their League Two survival hopes alive when Kristian Dennis’ stoppage time winner snatched all three points for the Spireites.


Team News:

John Pemberton revealed that everyone came through the Stockport match unscathed and he has a full squad to pick from (minus Luke Coddington who is recovering from a long-term injury).


Pemberton’s Thoughts:


“They are a very good football side and they will cause us problems if we are not at it defensively. Is it a good time to go play them? Only time will tell, I think.


“We are looking forward to the game and if we can do what we do well, I think we will give them a game.


“We’ve looked at Yeovil and we know what they’re about. So we look to do what we need to do and do it well.”
