The midfielder was sent off in the 2-2 draw at Dagenham and Redbridge on January 30 but another isolation period for the Spireites meant he has had to wait longer than expected to make his comeback.

The 24-year-old has had an impressive start to his Town career with his energetic displays and creative spark so his return will be a big boost.

Meanwhile, Nathan Tyson could be among the substitutes, with James Rowe saying after the defeat against Stockport County that the experienced striker will come back into the fold.
