Chesterfield v B'mouth preview

Chesterfield manager John Sheridan expects a handful of players to return from injury.
Defender Simon Ford (knee), midfielder Jimmy Juan (calf) and forwards Alex Mendy (head), Craig Westcarr (ankle) and Dean Morgan (hamstring) have all been out for varying amounts of time recently, but are likely to be available for selection.
However, one fresh injury concern is on-loan defender James Hurst. The West Brom teenager has been nursing an ankle problem this week and the club’s medical staff are still assessing the damage.
Should Hurst be unavailable, Drew Talbot will almost certainly revert to right-back from the right wing.
The Spireites halted a dismal 17-game winless run in League One with a 2-1 victory at Colchester last weekend.
Bournemouth will be without injured skipper Adam Barrett.
Barrett hobbled off in the early stages of the 2-1 victory over Notts County on January 14 with a hamstring problem and is likely to be out of action for between two and three months.
Midfielder Scott Malone is rated 50-50 with a hamstring complaint, but is unlikely to return, while Shaun MacDonald is also struggling.
Defender Mathieu Baudry is still sidelined with his own hamstring problem.
Joe Partington, Shaun Cooper and Mark Molesley are not match-fit after their respective injuries and will not be included in manager Lee Bradbury’s matchday squad, while the game comes too soon for full-back Nathan Byrne following his recovery from ankle surgery.
Striker Charlie Sheringham will miss the rest of the season with a foot injury.
