Match Preview

Moore could keep the faith Rotherham manager Ronnie Moore has no new injury worries ahead of his side's home game against Chesterfield. Moore may name an unchanged side after last week's 4-1 hammering of Barnet. Striker Tom Pope scored again for the reserves in midweek and is staking a claim for a first-team start and fellow striker Tom Elliott is likely to be back in the squad after refusing to risk a slight hamstring strain against Barnet to the anger of his manager. Nick Fenton will have to settle for a place on the bench after recovering from a groin injury while on-loan Dean Holden will be hopeful of a recall at right-back. Ryan Taylor has returned to training but won't be considered for a few weeks until he regains match fitness. Chesterfield boss John Sheridan has hinted he may make changes. The Spireites were impressive as they maintained their unbeaten start to the npower League Two campaign with a 3-0 home victory over Cheltenham last weekend. However, ahead of the Don Valley Stadium clash, Sheridan said: "Even though we won 3-0, sometimes I may have to make changes depending who we are playing. "Rotherham are a big physical side who will give us plenty of problems." Ian Breckin and Rob Page both featured in a midweek practice match against Doncaster. The former played for 60 minutes and is the more likely to come into the side should Sheridan opt to make changes in defence. Derek Niven also featured for an hour in that game and he could come into contention if the manager wants to add some steel to the midfield. Teenage striker Jordan Bowery is a slight doubt with a hip problem.

Match Report

Le Fondre ends Spireites run Chesterfield's unbeaten record was shattered by neighbours Rotherham after a pulsating derby clash was won thanks to a flash of brilliance from Adam Le Fondre. After a bright start in which they won three corners in the first 10 minutes, Chesterfield lost the initiative and the home side carved out a hatful of chances, but failed to take any of them. Tommy Lee in the Chesterfield goal pulled off a string of good saves, the best of them from Tom Pope just before the break as the leading scorers in the league failed to find the net. The Millers' best chance fell to Danny Harrison, who was left with a free header six yards out from Kevin Ellison's cross, but the midfielder somehow headed wide. And Chesterfield almost capitalised on Rotherham's generosity in front of goal when Mark Allott picked out a peach of a pass for Jack Lester, but he was thwarted by a brilliant save from Andy Warrington. But nine minutes after the break Rotherham did take the lead with a goal of sheer class. Le Fondre allowed Johnny Mullins throw in to run on the edge of the box and with everyone expecting a cross, he calmly lobbed the ball over everyone and into the opposite corner for his ninth goal of the season. Warrington pulled off two more splendid saves from Dean Morgan and Craig Davis as Chesterfield turned up the heat, but Le Fondre's touch of genius was enough.
