Match Preview

Sheridan set for shake-up Chesterfield manager John Sheridan is likely to make changes for the visit of local rivals Sheffield United. Sheridan saw his side thumped 5-2 at former club Oldham last weekend and the Spireites boss is losing patience with a number of his players. Scott Griffiths has joined from Peterborough for his second loan spell at the club, and could go straight into the starting XI in an attempt to shore up the Spireites' defence. The left side of midfield has been a problem position this season, the last five games having featured four different starters in that role. Frenchman Alex Mendy's place could be under threat after a few quiet games of late, with Dean Morgan favourite to pinch any vacancy. Veteran striker Jack Lester returned to action in the reserves after 12 weeks out with a broken arm, but it remains to be seen whether the visit of his former club will come too soon for the 36-year-old. Midfielder Lee Johnson and defender Jonathan Grounds are poised to play the final games of their loan spells before returning to Bristol City and Middlesbrough respectively, while Jamie Lowry has joined Crewe on loan until January. James Beattie is not expected to feature for Sheffield United after returning on a short-term contract. The 32-year-old has been inactive since leaving Rangers in the summer and was restricted to a total of 19 appearances for them and Blackpool, where he spent time on loan, last season. The Blades will also be without on-loan Wolves winger Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, who suffered a setback in his attempted comeback from a hamstring injury in the reserves on Monday when he suffered knee cartilage damage. But manager Danny Wilson could be boosted by the return of Johnny Ertl. The 29-year-old Austria international has been sidelined since March with cruciate ligament damage, but was close to returning to the bench last week. Ertl completed another 90 minutes for the reserves on Monday, as did Haiti defender Lecsinel Jean-Francois, striker Chris Porter, midfielder David McAllister and Argentinian full-back Elian Parrino, who could all feature. Wilson also has the option of including Danny Philiskirk in his squad following the striker's return from a loan spell at Oxford.

Match Report

Evans downs Chesterfield A superb solo goal from Ched Evans broke the brave resistance of League One bottom club Chesterfield and earned Sheffield United a hard-fought 1-0 win. Evans produced a rare moment of quality eight minutes from time to settle a frantic game at the B2net Stadium. Chesterfield had failed to keep a clean sheet in their previous 13 games but they defended well in the first half and Greg Fleming twice saved well from Evans and Chris Porter. Steve Simonsen denied Lee Johnson just before half time and Fleming again saved from Evans before Leon Clarke struck the United bar with an overhead kick in the 62nd minute. The game appeared to be heading for stalemate when Evans picked the ball up 30 yards from goal and slipped past two defenders before firing low into the bottom right corner from 15 yards. Chesterfield responded with a triple substitution but Stephen Quinn almost added a second before 2,000 United fans celebrated a first away League win since October.
