Charlie Raglan looks set to replace suspended Spireites skipper Ian Evatt for the visit of Yeovil Town on Saturday.

Raglan has made three appearances for Chesterfield this season - away at Port Vale, Scunthorpe United and Doncaster Rovers.

The former FC United of Manchester man’s only league start came at Doncaster when he partnered Evatt in the centre of defence.

His other league appearance came at Vale Park when he came on to replace the injured Sam Hird just before the half-hour mark.

He was selected alongside Jack Broadhead in defence days later when Chesterfield were knocked out of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy at Scunthorpe.

And if, as expected, Raglan is to be given the nod by Spireites boss Paul Cook to face the Glovers it will be his first start on home soil.

He will be part of a side looking to put a stop to the recent run of results, which has seen Chesterfield lose their last three.

Third from bottom Yeovil are in a similar run of form, having tasted defeat five times in their last six league games.

Glovers manager Gary Johnson has pointed towards the game having a possible knock-on effect for both clubs for the upcoming month.

But Cook cut a relaxed figure on Friday afternoon and said Chesterfield’s recent run of form has brought the squad closer together.

“We’re in 11th in League One, I can not see what all the doom and gloom is about,” said Cook. “The little things have gone against us, my way is to work harder.”
