Spireite striker struggling
Craig Westcarr is a slight doubt for relegation-haunted Chesterfield's trip to Hartlepool.
Westcarr failed to re-emerge for the second half against Wycombe on Monday after giving the Spireites a 1-0 half-time lead in a match they would eventually go on to win 4-0. Assistant boss Tommy Wright revealed that tight hamstrings were the problem, but it was "nothing too serious" and the forward only came off "as a precaution". At the core of the success against Wycombe was the central midfield duo of Franck Moussa and Mark Randall playing just in front of the fit-again Jimmy Juan and manager John Sheridan is likely to send his team out in the same formation at Victoria Park. Should Westcarr not make it, either Scott Boden or Nicky Ajose will come into the side. Midfielders Mark Allott and Danny Whitaker and defender Nathan Smith are also options for Sheridan but unnecessary changes are unlikely following Monday's performance. Chesterfield must win or they will be relegated. However, depending on results elsewhere, victory may not be enough to avoid an immediate return to League Two.
