Roberts has been hampered by the injury for the past couple of weeks and the summer signing from Swindon is a doubt for the Spireites ahead of their home game against Southend on Saturday.

"We are still a little bit worried about Gary at the minute in terms of him not training since (the Rochdale game last weekend), and if you don't train during the week then it affects your performance on the Saturday," said Blues boss Paul Cook.

"We are having the problem fully investigated. We will get more results from scans, because what we don't want is players playing while they are injured.

"It isn't fair to the player or the supporters, who judge what a player does out on the pitch. So certainly with Gary we want to make sure that he is 100 fit so that when he goes out on the pitch he can do what we all know he is good at."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
