PREVIEW: Spireites travel to Hampshire bottom half clash

Chesterfield travel to Aldershot Town in hope of rescuing the good form they had just a few weeks ago.

The Spireites are on a three game losing streak with the latest loss coming in the horrendous 5-1 loss to Hartlepool United on Tuesday.


The Opposition

Aldershot Town sit just two places and five points above the Spireites in the National League table.

Last season the Shots finished in 21st and should have been relegated but due to Gateshead breaking league rules they were demoted to the National League North, meaning Aldershot were handed a reprieve.

The Hampshire based side have recently beaten Notts County and secured a draw away at Yeovil Town since their 6-1 loss to Dagenham & Redbridge.


One To Watch

Lewis Walker - A couple of days ago Aldershot signed young striker Lewis Walker on a short-term loan from QPR. Last season he made his first team debut for the Championship club in their 4-0 victory over Swansea in April.

He is the son of former England and Nottingham Forest defender Des Walker. His older brother Tyler is currently on Loan from Forest at Lincoln, after spending last season with Mansfield.


Previous Meetings

Both sides have met many of times in the past. This season at the Proact, the Spireites earned their second victory of the season against the Shots as they came from behind to win 2-1.

Last season at the EBB Stadium, Sheridan secured his first win in his first league game back as Spireites boss. Will Evans scored either side of half time against his old club to give Chesterfield a much needed victory.


Team News

Mike Fondop will not be available due to suffering concussion in the game against Hartlepool. Josef Yarney and Haydn Hollis will also not be in contention due to injury.

Anthony Gerrard and Curtis Weston are also in contention for the trip to Hampshire tomorrow.


Sheridan’s Thoughts

The Spireites boss has said he’s never felt so unsure over who to play saying: “I’ve put one of two people in and it just didn’t work. We make too many wrong decisions.”

Sheridan also talked about the possibility of bringing in reinforcements in the coming days: "We're in the process of trying to get one or two in."
