Lee Novak starts for Chesterfield this afternoon, after winning his race to be fit for the game against Bury.

The front man injured his knee last week at Swindon and was a doubt for the final home game of the season.

His presence in the starting line-up will be a big boost for the Spireites, who will also be thankful for the return to fitness of Dion Donohue.

The young left-back trained for the first time on Friday after overcoming a groin injury.

He comes in for the suspended Charlie Raglan, and in another change, Jamal Campbell-Ryce takes the place of Chris Herd in what will presumably be a more attacking set-up.

More good news for Danny Wilson is the return to the bench of Ian Evatt, the veteran defender getting close to a comeback from a foot problem that has kept him out in recent months.

Chesterfield: Lee, Talbot, Donohue, Hird, Anderson, Aryibi, Jamal Campbell-Ryce, Liddle, Banks, O’Shea, Novak. Subs: Evatt, Gardner, Ebanks-Blake, Dimaio, Chapman, Simons, Slew.
