Laurence Wilson: Returns to contention

Laurence Wilson: Returns to contention

Team news for Saturday's League Two clash between Accrington and Chesterfield at the Crown Ground.

Accrington boss James Beattie loses one defender to suspension but gets another back from a ban.

Stanley full-back Nicky Hunt will miss the Lancashire club's next two contests after accruing 10 yellow cards this season.

However, Beattie is able to call upon Laurence Wilson again after he completed a three-game suspension following his dismissal in last month's 0-0 draw with Bury.

The only injury absentee remains fringe player Marcus Carver, who is around three weeks away from a return following surgery on his shin.

Chesterfield manager Paul Cook expects to have an unchanged squad when he returns to face former club Accrington.

Gary Roberts has been nursing a dead leg this week but the winger should be fit for Saturday afternoon, leaving right-back Drew Talbot as the only injury absentee as he continues to recover from an abductor problem.

Cook, who finished his playing career at Accrington and managed Stanley prior to taking the Spireites job in October 2012, has hinted at changes in midfield and attack following the goalless home draw with Portsmouth on Monday night so the likes of Sam Togwell, Marc Richards, James O'Shea and Armand Gnanduillet could be vying for starting roles.

A gentleman's agreement means veteran goalkeeper Ian Dunbavin, on loan from Accrington, will not be on the bench.
