Spireites assistant manager Adrian Whitbread says Martin Allen is dealing with both situations, involving former Stoke City prospect Ryan Hill and midfielder Jordan Sinnott.

Hill played under the guise of trialist for Town on Monday night at Matlock.

“The manager spoke to him after the game last night, that discussion is ongoing as of right now,” said Whitbread.

“Martin said he would speak to him later on today as well.

“That’s still ongoing as are one or two other things.”

Sinnott did not feature at Causeway Lane and Allen revealed after the game that there was ‘interest’ from elsewhere in Sinnott.

But the former Halifax player, who has a year left on his contract, was involved in the new squad picture, taken today at the Proact.

“That’s another ongoing discussion with the player and his representative,” Whitbread said.

“The manager has always said while players are still with us then we’ll treat them the same as everyone else and I think Jordan respects that.

“Other than that we’re just putting our effort into the squad and making sure we’re fully focused for Saturday’s game.

“The players have a day off tomorrow, they’ve worked very hard the last two days, as they have all pre-season.”
