2nd play 3rd at Bootham Crescent this weekend in what is a massive opportunity for Chester to cut the gap on Saturday’s opponents.
A large crowd is expected for one of the final games at Bootham Crescent before the Minstermen move into their new ground. Steve Watson’s side have built on solid defensive foundations and are still looking to chase down league leaders King’s Lynn Town – they sit four points behind.
Chester will be eager to bounce back from Tuesday’s defeat – and cut the gap to York – in a very difficult away contest. Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s side have been boosted though by tying down Brad Jackson and George Glendon to 18-month deals in the last 24 hours.
Both are expected to feature, as the Blues look to gain revenge for their home loss against tomorrow’s opposition back in October.
It’s a massive promotion six-pointer, and kick off is 3pm!
