Torquay boss Paul Buckle has no fresh injury concerns for the crunch clash.

With the Gulls chasing a play-off spot and the Spireites looking to secure the title, the fixture has huge implications for both clubs.

Buckle has seen his side draw their last three games to take their unbeaten run to 10 matches, but they have slipped out of the top seven.

Striker Billy Kee has come off the bench in the last two games and grabbed the equaliser in the 3-3 draw at Burton, so he could have played his way into contention for a start.

Craig Stanley, on loan from Morecambe, recently returned to the starting line-up after a two-game ban and he looks set to retain his place in midfield.

A first-half strike from Jack Lester settled the match in Chesterfield's favour when the two sides met at the B2Net Stadium.

Dean Morgan is a doubt for Chesterfield.

A slight thigh strain forced the forward off during the home defeat to Bury on Easter Monday.

Morgan is the only concern for manager John Sheridan, who has plenty of options available should he wish to make changes.

Defenders Simon Ford and Ian Breckin, midfielders Derek Niven, Ian Morris and Kieran Djilali along with forwards Jordan Bowery and Scott Boden are all available for recalls.

Victory at Plainmoor on Friday evening would move Chesterfield five points ahead of second-placed Bury, who host Wycombe on Saturday.

Should the Spireites win and Bury fail to do so, then Sheridan's long-time league leaders would be crowned champions.
