Chesterfield - Bristol C 36 27 37

Jon Worthington 10(0) 2 is also out due a one-game ban after reaching five bookings and defender Efe Sodje 8(0) sits out the last of his three-game suspension.

Striker Steve Howard 10(0) 5 is suspended while David Bayliss 0 (hamstring) and Marlon Beresford 10(0) (groin) will also miss out. On-loan Gary McSheffrey 0(2) could replace Howard while Dino Seremet 0(1) should again deputise for Beresford between the posts.
