Herd set for return

Fringe Socceroo Chris Herd is set to return to action for the first time in a month after a hip flexor injury.

Chesterfield confirmed the 26-year-old will line up in Tuesday night’s reserves clash against Hartlepool United.

Herd hasn’t played since being replaced after 19 minutes in Chesterfield’s League One clash with Crewe on February 20.

The Perth-born midfielder has enjoyed his most consistent season in years, making 21 appearances in all competitions for the Spireites.

Herd hasn’t been involved with the Socceroos since withdrawing from the 2015 Asian Cup due to an Achilles injury.
