Match Preview

Spireites sweating on Talbot Chesterfield will check on the fitness of Drew Talbot ahead of the visit of Tranmere. Talbot has missed the last two matches with a knock he sustained during the 1-0 home victory over Sheffield Wednesday 13 days ago. The versatile 25-year-old is rated at 50-50 for Saturday's game. On-loan defender James Hurst has missed the last four fixtures with an ankle injury and he looks likely to miss out again along with fellow full-back Gregor Robertson (hamstring) and midfielder Jimmy Juan (ankle). Chesterfield are five points adrift of safety at the bottom of the table following successive defeats to Notts County and Charlton. However, John Sheridan's side have already beaten Tranmere at the B2net Stadium this season. The Spireites claimed a thrilling 4-3 victory in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy on their way to the final of the competition at Wembley later this month. Tranmere boss Les Parry will make a late decision on whether to include defender Mark McCrystal in his matchday squad. McCrystal is set for an extended period on the sidelines after discovering he needs a hernia operation but is not due to go under the knife until next week, leaving Parry with a dilemma. "I've got to consider what to do with Mark on Saturday because he won't be having his operation until the beginning of next week," Parry told Tranmere Player. "So we'll have a look at it and see if it's worth chancing him on the bench." Parry will enjoy an unfamiliar luxury of options in attack after Enoch Showunmi (leg) and Andy Robinson (knee) came through their returns as substitutes in last weekend's defeat to Oldham unscathed. The pair will push for a start alongside Ryan Brunt up front after Stoke agreed to extend the 18-year-old striker's loan spell at Prenton Park for a further month. Defenders Zoumana Bakayogo (leg) and David Raven (hernia) have returned to reserve action and full training respectively this week but are not expected to be considered for selection.

Match Report

Bowery strike spurs Spireites Jordan Bowery's eighth goal of the season gave clinched struggling Chesterfield a vital 1-0 home win over Tranmere, who were dragged into the relegation battle. Bowery struck in the 76th minute to leave Tranmere without a victory in 2012 and anxiously looking over their shoulders. Chesterfield had not scored in their previous two games, but looked certain to take the lead in the 38th minute when a short back pass let Jack Lester in only for Rovers defender Ian Goodison to make a sliding goalline clearance. Tranmere were rescued again in the 51st minute by a plunging save from goalkeeper Owain Fon-Williams to keep out a 25 yard drive from Nicky Ajose. But the visitors forced Tommy Lee into his first serious save via Andy Robinson's near post shot in the 71st minute. But the home side finally made the breakthrough five minutes later when Lester's precise pass set up Bowery to drive a low shot from 12 yards past the right hand of Fon-Williams.
