CHESTERFIELD travel to Exeter City at the weekend with both sides looking for a change in fortunes.

The Spireites have lost three of their last four games including the loss at Doncaster Rovers in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

Paul Tisdale’s Grecians have picked up points in just one of their last five games. They’ve lost their last two, without scoring, after they beat struggling Barnet which followed on from two earlier defeats.

Both managers could be looking at 37-year-olds to be their trailblazers. Tisdale has Jamie Cureton in his locker.

The striker has been a regular scorer against the Spireites and has already bagged nine goals this season as he approaches 700 senior appearances.

Jack Lester, with 615 first-team games under his belt, has scored half a dozen times this term.

He may not feature from the start as caretaker boss Tommy Wright looks to preserve his star man, who generally appears from off the bench in away games.

The Spireites have won two and drawn one of their last four trips to St James’ Park but last season City did the double.

Wright will be sweating on the fitness of Sam Togwell (knee) but Danny Whitaker (groin) is expected to be fit.
