As everybody will know by now, manager James Rowe has been suspended over misconduct allegations and an investigation is ongoing.

The Spireites, led by first-team coach Danny Webb today, will be hoping they can forget about that for 90 minutes at least and get back to winning ways in the National League.

Eastleigh sacked manager Ben Strevens in midweek so neither side will have a permanent boss on the touchline.
