Tendayi Darikwa: Should be involved

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Chesterfield and Bristol Rovers at the Proact Stadium.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook expects to have an unchanged squad.

Tendayi Darikwa made his return from a month-long absence with a double hernia as a late substitute during the 1-0 defeat at Cheltenham on Tuesday night, and the highly-rated winger is expected to be involved again on Saturday.

Cook told reporters: "This is his first training week and he's come through that 10 minutes at Cheltenham.

"The likelihood is that he'll be on the bench again to start with on Saturday, come on, influence the game and then he's good to go.

"We're doing well in terms of bodies and numbers. We've got good selection, people to pick from, but we just need those goals."

The Spireites have scored just one goal in their last five League Two matches.

Bristol Rovers are expected to be boosted by the return of winger Joe Anyinsah as they look to complete a memorable week.

Having beaten Burton 3-0 last Saturday, Rovers were comfortable winners against West Country rivals Exeter 2-0 at the Memorial Stadium on Wednesday night to move nine points clear of the relegation zone.

The former Charlton man was forced off just 25 minutes into the victory over the Brewers after tweaking his hamstring but the club expect him to return to contention this weekend.

Fabian Broghammer returned to action as a substitute in midweek after injury but manager John Ward could stick with youngster Ellis Harrison who shone in the German's absence.

Danny Woodards is expected to be given the nod to continue in the defensive midfield position again as Rovers look for their ninth victory of 2013.
