Fleetwood v Chesterfield preview

Team news for Tuesday's JPT Northern Area final first-leg clash between Chesterfield and Fleetwood at the Proact Stadium.

Alex Marrow is expected to return for Fleetwood in the crunch clash with the Spireites.

The on-loan Blackburn midfielder was rested for Saturday's 2-1 home loss to York as he nursed a niggle but he should be back to face the Spireites.

Graham Alexander is still without long-term absentees Jamille Matt (ankle) and Jeff Hughes (broken leg).

New signing Matty Hughes could be in the matchday squad, although Alexander may decide against handing the former Skelmersdale striker his debut in such a big game.

Chesterfield boss Paul Cook has a fully-fit squad at his disposal for the midweek cup tie.

Cook is unlikely to make wholesale changes to the side which recorded a 3-1 win over Bristol Rovers at the weekend, but he has options available to him should he wish to freshen things up.

Drew Talbot (abductor) was an unused substitute on Saturday and he is in contention to play some part.

Midfielder Sam Morsy scored his first goal for the club against the Gas and is expected to keep his spot in the starting XI.
