Chester will look to build on Saturday’s point at Brackley, as they travel to Farsley Celtic tonight.
Anthony Johnson and Bernard Morley’s side were more than worthy of a draw, arguably creating the better of the chances in a 1-1 draw on the weekend. Jordan Cullinane-Liburd’s own goal gave the Blues the lead on 51 minutes, but Matt Lowe equalised for the Saints ten minutes later.
Joel Taylor was sent off late on for a second bookable offence, but his one-game ban doesn’t kick in until Saturday’s game against Gateshead, meaning the left back is cleared to play at Farsley.
The Celts have only won once in their opening nine league games, however they remain unbeaten at home this term and have lost just one of their last five matches.
In the solitary meeting between the sides last term, the Blues ran out 2-1 winners. Brad Jackson and George Waring were on the scoresheet at the Deva in August 2019.
