Team News: Chesterfield vs. Blues

24 August 2013

One enforced change as Conor Clifford comes in for the injured Marc Laird.

Phil Brown made just one enforced change for Blues’ trip to Chesterfield as Conor Clifford replaced the injured Marc Laird.

Laird picked up a knee injury in the 2-0 win against Northampton Town last weekend which meant Clifford came in to make his first start in the league for Blues.

The only other change was on the substitutes bench as youth team defender Josh Banton came in as Mark Phillips failed a late fitness test.

Phil Brown said: “I was impressed with Adam Thompson and Luke Prosser at centre-back last week and Mark probably would’ve been on the bench if he was fit, but he didn’t quite make it.

“I’m pleased we’re able to keep the team very similar, it’s a shame Marc is out but it’ll be a chance for Conor Clifford to prove himself.”

BLUES: Bentley; White, Prosser, Thompson, Coker; Atkinson, Leonard, Clifford, Straker; Eastwood, Corr.

Subs: Payne, Smith, Timlin, Hurst, Reid, Cowan, Banton.
