Chesterfield will be without defender Will Evans until the club can sort out his recurring injury, report the Derbyshire Times.

The centre-half first picked up a lower back and hip problem on 25th August and although it seemed to settle between games, further knocks have convinced the Spireites to take him out of the firing line, ahead of the visit of Gateshead.

Manager Martin Allen explained: “He got a knee against Barnet and hasn’t been able to shrug that off. We played him against Hartlepool and he got another knock on it after 15 minutes and had to come off.

“He did very, very well in training last week so we played him at Dagenham, but he got another knock on it and it flared up again during the game. Now we’ve decided he’s going to have an intense rehab programme, get his injury 100 per cent right before he comes back into the team.”

Allen can’t yet put a timeframe on Evans’ return to action.
