Spireites boss Paul Cook says he is delighted to have goalkeeper Tommy Lee available for selection against Bristol City.

Lee will take his place in goal after his red card in the 3-2 win over Sheffield United was overturned following a successful appeal to the FA.

“We looked at the red card and I didn’t think it was a red card at the time,” said Cook.

“It was clearly not a red card, but the referee gave it.

“Referees have big decisions to make that can change games, that one went against us, but thankfully we held on for a win we fully deserved.

“We did not think it was a red card and I am pleased that the FA has looked at this and agreed with us.

“It is good for us that Tommy Lee will be back and available for selection.”

Top scorer Eoin Doyle will also be available for selection after overcoming a slight hamstring problem picked up against the Blades.

But defender Sam Hurd is likely to be out until mid November.
