Chesterfield will be glad to get back to doing their talking on the pitch against Eastleigh today after a controversial week.

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.

Our reporter Liam Norcliffe is at the Silverlake Stadium and will bring you everything you need to know before, during and after the game.

Two teams seemingly lacking in a bit of confidence in the final third.

Neither team has done enough to win this one so far.

First Spireites sub - 66 minutes

Quigley off, Asante on.

Quigley has been anonymous.

Nicks the ball off Whelan and lets fly from 25 yards but it goes well over. An hour gone.

Still goalless. Perhaps we could see Asante soon?

For Weston. Think that is for an accumulation of fouls.

Tshimanga shot blocked

From inside the area after a clever pass from Mandeville.

No changes for either side.


HT: Eastleigh 0 v 0 Chesterfield

A fairly even first-half. Loach has made two decent saves. Up the other end, Maguire has had both of Town’s efforts on target.

From about 20 yards after he was the first to the ball. It was well wide. Almost half-time.
