                                                    Cook keeps mum over injured duo Chesterfield manager Paul Cook gave little away about whether Tommy Lee and Marc Richards would be ready to return to the squad against Oxford.

                                                    Highly-rated goalkeeper Lee (shoulder) and striker Richards (hamstring) have been sidelined since the start of September and are "very close" to making their comebacks.

                                                    When asked if the duo will be fit for Saturday, Cook, who has also been without on-loan defender Liam Cooper, midfielder Mark Allott (hamstring) and striker Luis Boa Morte (groin) in recent weeks, said: "Watch this space.

                                                    "We have to be careful what we say about injuries as last week we said Tommy Lee would be ready, so then all the fans get excited, but he wasn't.

                                                    "We obviously want everyone back as soon as possible. But what I will say is that we have had a number of players who have been out injured who are now training with the first team and they are very close." Cook hinted that Brennan Dickenson would make his full debut against the Us. The teenage forward, who joined Chesterfield on loan from Brighton last week, marked his first appearance for the club from the bench with a goal during the 3-2 defeat at Bristol Rovers.

                                                    Alfie Potter has given Oxford boss Chris Wilder a boost ahead of the trip by returning to training after a hamstring injury.

                                                    The player, who has scored five times this season, missed the defeat at Dagenham and the draw with Torquay last weekend but is expected to make the trip north after making a full recovery.

                                                    Potter, 23, is the only absentee for Wilder who handed defender Liam Davis his first start of the season against the Gulls after the full-back had been missing since May through injury.

                                                    Until their recent blip Wilder's Oxford had only lost two of their previous eight games, a spell which included a 5-0 thrashing of Accrington and a 3-1 win away to Wycombe, but one point from their last two games means they are 17th going into the clash.

                                                    Last-gasp Atkinson sinks U's Oxford had the first word but Chesterfield had the last as Chris Atkinson's stoppage-time goal gave the home side a 2-1 victory after going behind in the opening minute.

                                                    John Mullins headed Oxford ahead but Liam Cooper equalised on the stroke of half-time and Atkinson settled it right at the end.

                                                    Tommy Lee returned to the side after two months out through injury but as beaten in the first minute when a corner to the back post was headed just under the bar by Mullins.

                                                    Lee kept Chesterfield in it with a flying save to parry a Jake Forster-Caskey header six minutes later, but Oxford should have scored again in the 33rd minute when a cross fell invitingly to James Constable 10 yards out and he lashed a shot high over the bar.

                                                    Chesterfield had created few chances but they equalised in first-half stoppage time when a corner broke to Cooper, who fired into the roof of the net from 12 yards.

                                                    It needed a brave block by Andy Whing to stop Brennan Dickenson putting the home side ahead in the 66th minute but Chesterfield won it in added time when Marc Richards put Atkinson in to slide a low shot across Ryan Clarke and inside the far post.
