Match Preview

Chesterfield's Lester leaving it late Jack Lester faces a late fitness test for Chesterfield as they look to secure what would be a cruical win against fellow strugglers Walsall. Lester has recovered from a broken arm that kept him sidelined for three months but has now been hit by a virus that could keep him out of the League One clash. Nathan Smith's recovery from a knock means Lester is the only absentee for manager John Sheridan, who may name an unchanged starting XI from the side that lost 3-2 at Wycombe. Sheridan is confident of an upturn in the club's fortunes, despite a run of no league win since mid-September. Sheridan told the club website: "I've got a good group of players who want to do well. We're just not getting that luck, we've just got to keep grinding it out." Walsall have received mixed news on the injury front. Centre-back Manny Smith looks unlikely to feature at the b2net Stadium having been forced off in the 80th minute on Tuesday`s FA Cup second-round replay against Dagenham & Redbridge after being kicked in the face as he went for a diving header, losing as many as three teeth. Smith was released from hospital on Tuesday night but is set to miss out against the Spireites, with skipper Andy Butler ready to step back into the fold. Central defensive partner Olly Lancashire had already been forced off in the first half of the tie nursing a hamstring injury but he has a chance of featuring. Full-back Mat Sadler returns to Dean Smith`s squad having served a one-match suspension in the penalty shoot-out defeat to the Daggers yet striker Ryan Jarvis completes his three-match ban. Midfielder Kevan Hurst is back in full training having recovered from a broken bone in his heel but is not expected to be match fit.

Match Report

Lester lifts Chesterfield Jack Lester marked his first start since September by saving Chesterfield from another defeat when Walsall were denied victory in the final minute as the bottom-of-the-table clash ended in a 1-1 draw. Alex Nicholls had given Walsall a deserved first-half lead but Lester, who has been out with a broken arm, pounced in the 90th minute to earn Chesterfield only their third point in 12 games. Chesterfield almost scored after 35 seconds when Craig Westcarr's low shot was turned behind by Jimmy Walker but Walsall settled and exposed the home side's defensive frailities in the 29th minute. Anton Peterlin's ball in the from the left found Nicholls completely unmarked and the striker's shot from 18 yards found the bottom corner, although Tommy Lee got a hand to it. Chesterfield had been poor in the first half but they put the Walsall defence under pressure in the second and almost equalised when Lester got in but was forced wide by Walker, who then saw a Danny Whitaker shot clip the top of his crossbar in the 78th minute. The visitors had defended well but they cracked in the 90th minute when a deflected shot fell to Lester who turned and fired low past Walker to rescue a point Chesterfield's second-half pressure deserved.
