Argentine defender Marcos Rojo is set to return from a two week injury and may be in line for a start against Scunthorpe United. The return of Rojo will come as a welcome relief for Chesterfield whose league form has stuttered with a dour draw against Birmingham and loss to Leicester City.

Last season’s fan favourite player Rojo, 23 has been an ever present in the Spireites line-up with 19 appearances and had missed the last four games as a result of a troublesome sprained ankle. However Russian defender Vladimir Granat has provided more the sufficient cover but manager Glory Days is pleased to have the towering Rojo back in his fit squad “Marcos has been training and he looks to be set in being in the match squad. It great to have him back in the team, his leadership and command of the team is second to none

It’s a much needed boost for the Spireites who have suffered a bout of inconsistent form with a loss to Leicester and two draws against Birmingham and Queens Park Rangers.

Despite overperforming for the second consecutive season, Chesterfield will need to consolidate their play-off spot with Coventry, Swindon Town and Birmingham less than three points away. Needless to say the upcoming encounters Scunthorpe Unite and Barnsley will be important to poise the Spireites on another promotion run.
