FA TROPHY PREVIEW | Chester vs Bradford (Park Avenue)
The Blues move away from league action at the Deva, as Bradford (Park Avenue) visit for a Buildbase FA Trophy clash under the lights.
With the Second and Third Round draws being revealed last week, the winners of this tie will head to Altrincham in Round Three on Saturday. Chester come into this after a thrilling 5-3 victory last Tuesday over Hereford – and then a clean sheet and hard fought point on the road at Boston United over the weekend.
Fellow National League North side BPA meanwhile dropped to 15th following a 3-1 home loss to in form Leamington on Saturday. They will be without Manager Mark Bower, who tested positive for Covid-19 earlier this month, and won’t be in the dugout for this trophy tie.
Should the game be level after 90 minutes, we will go straight to a penalty shootout. The winners of this cup tie will receive £3,750, while the losers will get £1,000.
