Chester will be looking to bounce back from a first defeat in 12 games on Saturday, as tonight they face a trip to York City.
It is likely to be the final time ever they make the trip to Bootham Crescent, with York all set to move into their new stadium for the 2019-2020 campaign. They sit 15th in the National League North, ten points behind the Blues.
Manager Sam Collins recruited Kennedy Digie and Joe Ironside on loan from Kidderminster yesterday, and would have been encouraged on Saturday as the Minstermen were just edged out 2-1 in the Emirates FA Cup to League Two side Swindon Town. They will look to build on that this evening.
Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s side were on a superb run of 11 unbeaten before defeat to Altrincham on Saturday. A tough period with games coming thick and fast saw Gary Stopforth miss out due to injury, he is 50/50 for tonight’s match. Nevertheless, it is still a fantastic run from the Blues and they can still go top of the table this evening with victory.
