PREVIEW: Spireites travel to Torquay in search for Christmas joy

Chesterfield face Torquay United in hope of making the 500 mile round-trip rewarding for the supporters in the last game before Christmas.


The Opposition

Gary Johnson’s side sit 11th in the National League table. However they are the only team in the National League in worse form than Chesterfield.

The Gulls without a League win in 5, but they come into the game on the back of a 5-1 thrashing over Aldershot Town in the FA Trophy.


Previous Meetings

Back in September the Spireites clocked their first victory of the season at home to the Gulls when Scott Boden netted the only goal of the game to secure all three points.


One To Watch

Jamie Reid- The 25 year old is currently joint top scorer in the National League along with Yeovil Town’s Rhys Murphy.

Reid, who was born in Torquay, started off his career down the road at Exeter City. He graduated from their youth system and signed his first pro contract in 2012.

During his time with the Grecians, the striker had three loan spells at Torquay before signing permanently for them in 2017. Reid has found the back of the net fifteen times already this season and will certainly be the man to watch.


Team News

The boss revealed that Josef Yarney has trained most of the week but he will not be involved tomorrow.

Matt Tootle and Luke Coddington are both suffering from long-term injuries and will not be back for a while.

The gaffer also revealed Liam Shaw and Jermaine McGlashan will be returning to their parent clubs in January when their loan deals run out. He added that he would like to extend Gevaro’s loan with the Spireites.


Sheridan’s Thoughts

“They’re a good team. I thought they were good when we beat them 1-0 here. They’ve got some good players like Reid who scores a lot of goals and we are well aware of that.

“We have to believe that we’re as good as anyone in the league. We’ve got to try and push on and get results.”
