Talbot back in frame for Spireites
Striker Talbot may have to settle for a place on the bench after the Spireites won both their home games in his absence. Defender Phil Picken, midfielder Derek Niven and forward Wade Small all sustained knocks in the midweek win over Grimsby but are also expected to be fit. Blues boss John Sheridan added that long-term injury victims Alan Goodall (ankle) and Aaron Downes (knee) are 'progressing well' but remain some way off a return to the first-team squad. Sheridan has boosted his squad with the signing of Colchester midfielder David Perkins on a one-month loan and he should feature providing the paperwork goes through in time.
