Lester available for Grecians clash
Jack Lester will come back into the reckoning for Chesterfield ahead of the visit of Exeter.
Lester missed the Christmas and New Year fixtures as he served a three-match suspension.
The veteran striker usually starts at the B2net Stadium so Noel Alexandre Mendy, Craig Westcarr or Jordan Bowery will see their places come under threat.
John Sheridan's squad will be boosted by Liam Ridehalgh after 20-year-old defender signed on loan from Huddersfield for the remainder of the campaign.
Neal Trotman remains available after the defender's loan spell from Rochdale was turned into a permanent transfer this week.
Sheridan has options should he wish to make changes, with midfielders Jimmy Juan, Dwayne Mattis and Derek Niven available alongside forwards Scott Boden and Dean Morgan.
Exeter will be without on-loan forward Jake Taylor.
Reading man Taylor, who has scored twice in 14 matches this season since joined the Grecians on a temporary basis in September last year, has been receiving treatment for a hip problem at his parent club in recent days.
The Welshman is now back at St James' Park but his injury is likely to keep him out of action for up to two weeks.
Otherwise, manager Paul Tisdale has a fully-fit squad to select from.
Spireites woe continues
Chesterfield saw their winless run in npower League One extend to 16 games following a 2-0 defeat to Exeter.
The visitors had the better of a low-key opening but Chesterfield's threat grew as the game wore on and Artur Krysiak saved well from Neal Trotman and Jack Lester.
A dangerous run by Alex Mendy caused problems before Lester saw a goal-bound shot deflected wide.
After the interval, Exeter looked most likely to break the deadlock with Richard Duffy having a header saved by Tommy Lee.
Daniel Nardiello's run split the home defence and Guillem Bauza seemed certain to score until substitute Derek Niven flung his body in the way to make a last-ditch intervention.
Seven minutes later Chesterfield were handed a great chance to go ahead when Lester was brought down by Duffy as he twisted and turned inside the area.
Despite Exeter protests, Chesterfield were awarded a penalty but Danny Whitaker's tamely-struck spot kick was saved by Krysiak.
Chesterfield were made to pay in the 78th minute when James Dunne crossed from the right for Richard Logan to power home a close-range header.
Ten minutes later Liam Sercombe added a second goal with a well-struck low shot from the edge of the penalty area.
