Relief for Spireites

Sam Morsy’s injury picked up at Doncaster Rovers at the weekend isn’t as bad as first feared.

The influential midfielder hobbled out of the game in the first half with a hamstring problem which, after assessment, is expected to keep him out for no more than two weeks.

Midfielder Gary Roberts and left-back Daniel Jones suffered similar injuries against Scunthorpe and Preston respectively. Roberts, who was returning in that match after having a hamstring problem previously, is unlikely to be risked for the Notts County match unless 100 per cent ready. Jones picked up his injury just over a week ago so could miss out on the game against Shaun Derry’s Magpies.

Head of Sports Science Rodger Wylde said: “All three have the same injury. They came on very quickly in the games and they tried to play on. They’re not severe injuries, they’re just minor hamstring injuries, so they won’t be out for a great deal of time, perhaps two weeks each.”

Defender Georg Margreitter (concussion) can return after being sidelined at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Paul Cook’s squad have other bumps and bruises but nothing serious.
