Match Preview

No new worries for Spireites Manager John Sheridan has no new injury problems as Chesterfield prepare for a record attendance at the b2net Stadium against local rivals Rotherham. Sheridan could make changes from the side that started the defeat at Crewe last weekend, with veteran striker Jack Lester likely to make his customary return to the team for home matches. Defender Ian Breckin and midfielders Mark Allott and Dwayne Mattis are also options for the Blues boss. Long-term injury victims Aaron Downes (cruciate) and Simon Ford (calf) are the only absentees for the league leaders. The target for the televised game on Friday night is 9,141 - the current highest crowd at the b2net Stadium that saw the England Under-19s lose 1-0 to their German counterparts last month. Rotherham boss Ronnie Moore will have Nick Fenton and Mark Randall available for the trip. Centre-back Fenton missed last weekend's goalless draw with Bury with a knock but has returned to full training and will fight it out with fit-again club captain Ryan Cresswell for a starting berth. On-loan Arsenal midfielder Randall also missed out against the Shakers with a tight hamstring but played 90 minutes for the reserves in midweek and could be added to the squad. Fellow loanee Danny Coid is doubtful with a knock, so Dale Tonge looks set to continue at right-back. Left-back Tom Newey completes a three-match ban meaning Callum Kennedy, who this week extended his loan from Swindon until the end of the season, will continue in his absence. The Millers will be hoping to get their promotion challenge back on track with a win following three draws and a defeat in the last four games.

Match Report

Five-star Chesterfield crush Millers Chesterfield turned in a dazzling display with Jack Lester scoring a second hat-trick of the season as local rivals Rotherham were demolished 5-0 in front of a 10,000 plus crowd. The visitors wilted as Dean Holden, Craig Davies and Lester gave the League Two leaders a 3-0 interval lead with Lester striking twice in the second half. Chesterfield dominated from the first whistle and the only surprise was they had to wait until the 21st minute for the opening goal. Dean Morgan latched onto a scuffed clearance and delivered a superb cross from the left which Holden converted with a diving header. A wild back pass from Ryan Cresswell led to the 32nd minute corner that Deane Smalley flicked on for Davies to head in at the back post. Andy Warrington kept the visitors in the game when he denied Lester minutes later but in first-half added time, the striker latched onto Danny Whitaker's pass and turned two defenders before curling a left-footed shot into the net. Rotherham improved slightly but the night belonged to Chesterfield and Lester who punished poor defending in the 81st and 83rd minutes to complete the rout which sparked angry scenes from visiting fans.
