Marc Richards will miss Chesterfield's trip to Northampton through suspension.
Richards was shown a straight red card against Rochdale after referee Andy D'Urso ruled that the striker had handled the ball on the goal-line.
Armand Gnanduillet is likely to come back into the team while Richards serves a one-match ban, although Eoin Doyle is also an option for manager Paul Cook.
The Spireites will check on Drew Talbot after an abductor problem prevented him from emerging for the second half on Tuesday night while fellow defender Ian Evatt has also been receiving treatment following the dramatic 2-2 draw with Dale.
